WASHINGTON - US business groups said on Tuesday they were worried about a damaging trade war with Mexico if President Barack Obama's administration follows through on a preliminary decision to terminate a 16-year-old tomato trade agreement.

"We think the US-Mexico economic relationship is tremendously important," Patrick Kilbride from the US Chamber of Commerce told reporters on a conference call. "We don't want to see another trade war ignited."
