SH...Japan will ultimately determine that Tommy. Not a single person from USDA with an opinion that may have been taken out of context by someone like you who is desperately looking for a contradiction.
Scott I did not take him out of context and am not desperate. You, agman, the NCBA, and others have been telling us for a long time that our getting the market back with Japan is tied to our dealing with Canada.
Here is the direct quote...Mike Adams question...Any indication that that decision by the Japanese is contingent on our border decision with Canada, in other words do we have to open that border to Canada before we get access back with Japan?
Mr. Gabler's answer...NO..those two issues have never been linked and we're putting equal effort on trying to achieve openings with both, they are not linked and are not linked now.
Mr Gabler is speaking for the USDA Scott, you may know more about our trade negoiations than he does, but I doubt it.
