PERU: Peru preparing to fight EU over sardine restrictions
Peru has launched the first stage of disputes proceedings at the World Trade Organisation against the European Union, which it accuses of unfairly blocking the export of a type of Peruvian sardine.

As a result, the Peruvian government is complaining that the EU has erected unjustified trade barriers, breaking WTO treaty commitments, and has called for formal consultations with Brussels over the matter.
