Farmers and members of Milieudefensie (Dutch environmental organization) demonstrate against the controversial Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) in The Hague on April 26, 2016Negotiations for a vast US-EU trade pact, which aims to create a free-trade zone covering 850 million people, are likely to grind to a halt because of Washington's reluctance to make concessions, a top French trade official warned Tuesday. "In view of the United States' state of mind today, that seems to be the most likely option," minister of state for trade Matthias Fekl told French radio when asked if the talks on a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, which began in 2013, could stop.
