U.S. officials raised “grave concerns” over Mexico’s agricultural biotechnology policies in meetings with their Mexican counterparts on Monday, the office of U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai said.

“We made it clear today that if this issue is not resolved, we will consider all options, including taking formal steps to enforce our rights under the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement,” the USTR office said in a statement. U.S. agriculture and trade officials traveled to Mexico to discuss Mexico’s approach to agricultural biotech products.
