Monsanto is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, which is in the US, last time I checked. It is normally expected that the US government protects American interests against foreign conspiracies.
Michael R. Taylor's appointment by the Obama administration to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on July 7th sparked immediate debate and even outrage among many food and agriculture researchers, NGOs and activists. The Vice President for Public Policy at Monsanto Corp. from 1998 until 2001, Taylor exemplifies the revolving door between the food industry and the government agencies that regulate it. He is reviled for shaping and implementing the government's favorable agricultural biotechnology policies during the Clinton administration.

Are you joking?
It is not the job of the United States Government to meddle in other countries decisions to further the bottom line of American countries.
If Monsanto has a product people dont want they wont purchase it. that is a foundational precept of capitalism.
Strong-arming by a government in behalf of a client-corporation is at best, a misuse of govenment time, and at worse, way out of line.
