GENEVA, May 20 (Reuters) - The European Union has appealed against a World Trade Organization ruling against anti-dumping duties it imposed on imports of Argentinian biodiesel, the WTO said in a statement on Friday.
Argentina brought the complaint in 2013, saying the EU was using protectionism to block a major export, costing it $1.6 billion in lost sales per year.
A WTO dispute panel backed several of Argentina’s claims in March, but said the EU regulation at the heart of the dispute did not violate WTO rules. (Reporting by Tom Miles)
