Lithuania dispute: EU turns to the WTO
The European Union has initiated proceedings against China at the World Trade Organization (WTO) over the trade blockade against Lithuania. Brussels submitted a request for consultation with China in Geneva on Thursday after concluding its investigation of the embargo, the EU Commission said. According to the statement, the EU has evidence that the People's Republic refuses to clear Lithuanian goods at customs, rejects import requests from Lithuania, and pressures companies from other EU member states to eliminate Lithuanian suppliers from their supply chains (China.Table reported).
