"Kein nationales Gentechnikverbot "
German agriculture minister Christian Schmidt expressed his opposition to the European Commission's plans to reform the legislation for genetically modified plants used for feed and food. The foray is not compatible with either international trade law or with the EU internal market, he said. In addition, it would be difficult to control and counteracted the idea of simplifying EU regulations, he added. This is why the German government will reject the bill, Schmidt said on the sidelines of a meeting of EU agriculture ministers in Riga, Latvia.
