[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] December 10, 2003, 12:43 PM EST BRUSSELS, Belgium -- The European Union's head office said Wednesday it would examine whether the Pentagon decision to shut Germany, France and other countries that opposed its war in Iraq out of bidding for reconstruction contracts violates World Trade Organization rules. "We are asking the U.S. to provide us with information so we can see whether or not their commitments with regard to the WTO have been respected," said Arancha Gonzalez, trade spokeswoman at the European Commission. She said the 26 contracts listed on the Pentagon website would be examined to see what they cover and whether national security exemptions would apply. http://tinyurl.com/ynee NY Newsday _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
