The European Commission is “reluctant” to sit with the tobacco industry at the same table to discuss novel tobacco products such as e-cigarettes, a high-ranking EU official has said.

E-cigarettes may be less harmful, according to some reports, but they’re still “poison,” said Arūnas Vinčiūnas, [...] Asked why the Commission had systematically refused to meet with tobacco industry representatives during the current term, Vinčiūnas replied:

“There is reluctance and a specific attitude towards the tobacco industries,” which does not exist with other sectors.
