PARIS (Reuters) - France remains opposed to a plan by the European Union's executive to let each member country decide on whether to approve the growing of genetically modified (GM) crops, the French farm minister said on Thursday.

The proposals unveiled by the European Commission in June aim to overcome divisions between countries that have made EU approval of GM crops extremely difficult.

But they have again divided EU members on the issue, with some like France and Spain rejecting the idea of devolving responsibility to national governments.
