Koizumi eager to lift US beef ban

According to Asahi, Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi has given the thumbs-up to efforts to lift the ban on U.S. beef.

"Looking at the issue from the U.S. point of view, Americans eat beef every day, and they eat a lot more of it than the Japanese do, and it is safe," he said in the Lower House. "The United States is unhappy that Japanese are not eating beef that is so safe."
