Sweden threatens 'all out war' if EU attacks 'snus'

(The Local) Sweden’s Trade Minister Ewa Björling said the EU faces “all out war” with Sweden if a new health directive on tobacco being hammered out at the European Commission threatens Swedish moist snuff “snus”.

“This has been a low intensity conflict for years,” Björling told the TT news agency after leaving a one-hour meeting with Tonio Borg, the European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy.

“Depending on what the directive actually says… we’re facing all out war.”
