Complaint by Thailand.

This request for consultations, dated 3 October 1995, covers more or less the same grounds as Canadian (WT/DS9) and the US (WT/DS13) complaints over the EC duties on grains. In addition, Thailand seems to have alleged that the EC has violated the most-favoured-nation requirement under GATT Article I in their preferential treatment of basmati rice from India and Pakistan. See also the Uruguayan complaint (WT/DS25).
