Brazil says U.S. could lift ban on fresh beef imports in 2 months
July 17 (Reuters) - Brazil's Agriculture Minister Blairo
Maggi on Monday said the United States could lift a ban on
imports of fresh Brazilian beef in 30 to 60 days, following a
meeting with U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue.
Maggi said the final decision on whether to lift the ban
will be made after conclusion of a technical analysis of the
information presented by Brazil. He added that there is no
"political objection" to lifting the ban, according to a
recording of his remarks distributed by ministry officials.
