 the US Government is sabotaging the negotiations on the international anti-tobacco agreementA coalition of several medical societies in the United States, accused the Bush administration sabotage taking place in Geneva (Switzerland) negotiations on an international anti-Smoking agreement. The draft Treaty prohibits tax-free sale of tobacco products, and also imposes restrictions on the advertising of cigarettes. It is obvious that the commercial interests of the major American tobacco companies can be seriously affected if the document is adopted. The U.S. government systematically weakens each item of the contract, and, in parallel, trying to affect developing countries, tacitly threatening them with economic sanctions. "I'm ashamed of the role of my government, trying to disrupt these important negotiations," said Alfred Munzer, Chapter of the American Association of pulmonologists. "The U.S. adhere to the policy of double standards: supporting anti-tobacco programs in the country, they seek, at the same time, to oppose such attempts the rest of humanity,"said the Khatai Chitanondh, representative of the Thai delegation. According to who projections, funding these negotiations, by 2030 the number of people each year die from Smoking-related diseases exceeds 10 million people. (Рњedvestnik.ru).
