    Well, I do not think that this matter is “protectionist” per say.
    However, if one country requires some time of license for a product, the other country should implemente the same tipe of licenses for the same product.
    Its is a reciprocal matter. A trade is two ways street.
    This issue is not a big deal and both countries would comply to each other and business would operate soon normaly.

    At least we know that, commercially, they are spaying to each other and that is a fear practice to remind themselves or each other, that a guard is always alert . “ Big brother is watching me”.
