U.S. - Antigua online gambling talks deadline extended

 Antigua's Finance Minister Errol Cort said that it could take a few more months until U.S. and Antigua could reach a decision in the online gambling dispute. The tow countries have been in talks over Internet gambling ever since the World Trade Organization (WTO) ruled that the tiny nation of Antigua could impose $21 million in sanctions. The WTO decision stems from the U.S. ban on financial transactions to and from online gambling websites. Finance Minister Errol Cort says officials will know in about three months whether a compromise agreement is feasible. He also said Friday that officials agreed to extend a July 11th deadline, after a U.S. delegation recently arrived in Antigua for another round of talks.
