   The U.S. State Department is adding Gabon to its list of countries eligible to trade in rough diamonds under the Clean Diamond Trade Act of 2003, effective Friday.
    The statute requires the president to prohibit the import into, or export from, the U.S. of any rough diamond, from whatever source, that hasn’t been controlled through the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme, a multilateral process established by the U.N. to prevent conflict diamonds from entering the mainstream rough diamond market.

The strategy of only relying on unilateral pressure is causing a lot of collateral damage in the United States and elsewhere. We should stop bashing our allies, threatening tariffs with them [and] collaborate with them.

The Port of Zeebrugge is called by 12 liner services that also sail to regions outside North Europe, according to BlueWater Reporting’s Port Dashboard tool.
