MOSCOW, October 25 (Itar-Tass) —— At the talks on Russia' s accession to WTO Georgia suggested such formulations in respect to Abkhazia and South Ossetia to which we cannot agree, Presidential aide Arkady Dvorkovich declared at a business forum "Finnish Business in Moscow" on Tuesday. Georgia’s demands at the talks pertain" to a quite different thing rather than WTO, to which we cannot and will never agree," Dvorkovich stressed.
The talks with Georgia on Russia's accession to WTO are continuing in the field of Customs regulations, Dvorkovich said. In his opinion, a settlement is possible given goodwill of both sides.
If Russia does not join WTO it will be worse for everyone, and trade barriers on the background of the crisis will be growing, Dvorkovich warned. A question of Russia’s joining WTO remains open because a small, but a very essential problem has not been settled - the talks with Georgia are not complete, Dvorkovich said.
