EU Farm Reforms

BONN, Germany -- EU Agriculture Commissioner Franz Fischler said Monday the European Union was still far from agreement on farm reforms and urged the 15-nation bloc to strive for a deal when talks resumed Tuesday in Brussels, Belgium.

Fischler, interviewed on German Radio, said some countries were still making unreasonable demands and putting at risk efforts to contain EU farm budget costs.
