US hails WTO rulings in ‘dolphin-safe’ tuna tiff with Mexico

The U.S. ambassador to the World Trade Organization has welcomed two rulings that backed the United States in a long-running dispute with Mexico over U.S. “dolphin-safe tuna labeling.

Written by The Associated Press / abc news

The Trump administration has repeatedly criticized the WTO appellate body that delivered the rulings, and has thwarted efforts to appoint new members to it.

A WTO panel formally adopted Friday the rulings last month that found U.S. tuna-labeling measures in line with Washington’s commitments to the trade organization.

While welcoming the decision, Ambassador Dennis Shea voiced disappointment that it had taken “more than a decade to resolve.”

Alluding to Mexico’s concerns, Shea lamented that the U.S. “was forced to expend considerable resources over nearly a decade trying to defend successfully what was always an environmental measure with no element of protectionism.”

  1. Dolphin is a wonderful animal. It is a kind of mammal which lives on water. They are very attractive animal which draws so many interest of the tourist all over the world. Watching them personally gives an honor because it is very rare and very hard to find them without spending enough money. Seeing them means that you are financially capable. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a place near dolphin sanctuary haven.
