The article states that the U.S. cotton programs are under attack in the World Trade Organization trade meeting rounds. The cotton programs in the U.S. have been criticized and are blamed to be responsible for farmers' suicide, poverty, death all over the world. Although the U.S. has declared its plans for offering more market access for African countries, the European Union officials are not satisfied and have demanded for more measures. Moreover, the European Union, has declared that it will not open its agricultural market access as it is waiting for other nations to lower their barriers to industrial goods and services.
