WTO: Worrying Reporting Coming Out Of Geneva

The WTO Interpreter is carrying three worrying reports this morning. One suggests that new agriculture and NAMA texts have been delayed until at least late Monday Geneva time - meaning that the talks may have to be extended until the end of the week. Another talks about continuing problems from the French. The third talks about India and China being accused by the US of putting the negotiation in the "gravest jeopardy" over the propsed "special safeguard mechanism" for agriculture.
