'The United States believes that our beef is safe and that the markets ought to be open to it all around the world,' Rice told reporters with her South Korean counterpart Yu Myung-Hwan at her side after extensive talks in Washington.
'And this has been a trade issue and we are very desirous of having beef accepted in markets, as should be the case, given its safety and our adherence to international standards concerning beef production and shipment,' she said.
Opening up South Korean markets would really help out the cattle industry in the US. With the weak dollar we would really have the competitive edge over Australia there. I hope this tough talking helps solve the issue.
