MOSCOW, October 14 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s delegation within next two weeks will conduct active talks on accession to the World Trade Organization, chief WTO negotiator Maxim Medvedkov, who heads the Economic Development Ministry’s trade negotiations department, told Itar-Tass on Friday.
He noted that both multilateral and bilateral consultations with WTO member-states are scheduled. The next round of talks with Georgia through mediation of Switzerland is planned.
Medvedkov added that only one section of the report of the working group on Russia’s accession to the WTO – the industrial assembly of cars – remains unconsidered.
He expressed confidence that it is quite possible to reach a compromise on the issue. Other 45 sections of the report received preliminary approval.
Among points at issue Moscow’s chief negotiator named the quotas on meat import.
He believes that “there are chances to agree on the issue.”
Next week Russia plans to coordinate tariff obligations on market access.
