Coalition for Fair Lumber Imports Denies Press Reports of Discussions with Canadian Lumber Industry
Washington, DC, USA, 24 July 2006 -- /PRNewswire/ -- The Coalition for Fair Lumber Imports categorically denies that it, or its members, have or will engage in any discussions with representatives of the Canadian lumber industry concerning modifications to the recently initialed settlement agreement between the governments of the United States and Canada.

While the Coalition has serious concerns about aspects of the initialed agreement text, the Coalition and its members accept and support the position of the United States and Canada that negotiations have concluded and that the agreement text is not amendable.

The Coalition for Fair Lumber Imports continues to support a negotiated settlement as the best solution to end the ongoing lumber trade dispute, and agrees that settlement should be preferential to round after round of trade cases.
