Lithuania trade dispute: China agrees to talks with EU
In the coming weeks, the European Union will begin talks with China over its alleged violation of World Trade Organization (WTO) rules concerning its trade blockade of Lithuania. Beijing has agreed to the consultation request submitted by Brussels to the WTO in Geneva last month, the South China Morning Post reported, citing EU sources. Talks will have to begin within 30 days of the approval. "Consultations will be held and the EU is preparing for them," SCMP quotes an EU spokesman as saying. If the talks fail to yield a solution, the EU may request a hearing at the WTO.
