LAUSANNE, Switzerland. - Wednesday, February 26th 2014 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE) Philip Morris International Inc.’s (PMI) (NYSE/ Paris Euronext: PM) EU Region President Drago Azinovic made the following comment regarding the adoption by the European Parliament of the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD):

"The Tobacco Products Directive adopted by the European Parliament today represents a worrying departure from the EU’s basic standards of proportionate, evidenced-based policymaking, which will further erode intellectual property rights and undermine the EU Charter where these rights are protected.
