Washington dismisses TTIP leak as "misleading" and "flat out wrong"

The United States trade representative refers to the documents leaked by Greenpeace on free trade negotiations between his country and the European Union as "misleading at best and flat out wrong at worst."

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) "will preserve, not undermine, our strong consumer, health, environmental standards, and position the US and the EU to work together to push standards higher around the world," Michael Froman says in a statement.

"We look forward to having a fact-based discussion about what TTIP seeks and does not seek to achieve," he says.
