Mexico demands World Trade panel with Argentina

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Mexico has asked for a World Trade Organization panel to rule on a dispute over trade restrictions with Argentina, the economy ministry said on Wednesday.

Mexico objects to Argentina's rules that require import licenses that critics say amount to a blanket restriction on imports.

"The measures imposed by Argentina restrict the import of merchandise into its territory and discriminate between domestic and foreign merchandise, and Mexico believes these actions contravene WTO rules," the ministry said in a statement.
