Japan not to ease rule on U.S. beef imports: Farm Ministry official

JAPAN - Japanese Vice Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Yoshio Kobayashi said Thursday that Japan has no plans at present to ease its rule on U.S. beef imports. Kobayashi made the remark at a press conference after U.S. Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns on Wednesday reiterated Washington's call for Japan to permit imports of U.S. beef taken from cows aged up to 30 months.
