Extracts from SPS Committee meeting summary reports

Argentina indicated it had not received a satisfactory answer to repeated requests that Mexico provide information on its specific sanitary requirements for beef imports and the related risk assessments. Argentina recalled that it was free of FMD. Mexico took note of Argentina's concerns and expressed hope to resolve the matter bilaterally.
