Greenpeace has released leaked secret TTIP negotiation documents that show the US is applying pressure on the EU to weaken European protection laws on the environment and public health.
The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership is an attempt to create the world’s biggest free trade zone between the US and European Union.
Jorgo Riss is Greenpeace EU director.
“The EU in relation to environment protection, public health and product standards that are relevant for consumers is a fairly bad position and the United States is much worse. So the prospect of having a final agreement that is between bad and worse is not a encouraging one.”
