"No, we do not know anything about that," Ayrault told reporters answering the question whether Paris intendeds to halt TTIP talks.
"We also said that we were not against trade agreements, we have a very good example of the treaty which Canada… which has brought good results. But it is unacceptable, when the conditions are not fulfilled and when [the agreement] is not balanced and only Europe takes efforts," Ayrault said.
TTIP seeks to establish a free trade zone between the United States and Europe. The US government started discussions on the draft deal with the European Union in 2013. The details of TTIP, including specific rules of market access, have not been released to the public.
The TTIP agreement has drawn severe criticism for the lack of transparency in the negotiations as well as for the tremendous power it would potentially give to international corporations.
