Greece’s Agricultural Development & Food Minister Makis Voridis requested that the United States exclude Greek products in the tariffs under consideration, at a meeting with US Ambassador to Athens Geoffrey Pyatt, ANA reports.
Referring to the possibility that the US will impose tariffs on imported EU agricultural products, Voridis pointed out the close relations Greece has with the US in the framework of the two countries’ Strategic Dialogue.
“This is a trade war that does not relate to Greece,” Voridis said. “On the contrary, the possibility of tariffs on farm products of Greek interest – such as olive oil, table olives, fruit preserves and frozen cherries – will harm the income of a large number of small-scale producers.”
