Canadian beef stalled over japans mad cow ban in japan – now he thinks he can just buy them from China.
Tillerson, whose State Department has been trying to persuade Japan and the US to adopt tougher beef tariffs, made his position very clear, telling a Senate foreign affairs hearing on Thursday: “The United States will not be in a position in the near future to 바카라offer any concessions, because the더킹카지노 only reasonable response to those trade barriers would be a complete loss of access to Japanese products… As you know, we’ve got over 100 million Americans in Japan, and a lot of them have been very unhappy.”
