GENEVA (B)--U.S. senior agriculture negotiator Greg Frazier June 29 described recent U.S. global farm reform proposals as "comprehensive, bold and reform-oriented," and setting "a benchmark for goals." Frazier denied the proposal is directed at undermining the European Union's Common Agricultural Policy and emphasized that U.S. proposals should thoroughly overhaul global farm sector spending through talks at the World Trade Organization.

Frazier denied suggestions that the U.S. proposal (see story BHDZQXS) is a direct attack on the EU's system of subsidies, most of which would have to disappear under the U.S.' proposed model.
