MINSK, November 28 (Itar-Tass) —— Belarus and Russia will sign in Moscow on December 19 a memorandum on assistance for Belarus’ joining the WTO, Belarus’ Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Rumas told the republic’s parliament on Monday.

“Russia’s joining the WTO will ease Belarus’ task to join the organisation, including at the political level,” he said. “On December 19, we shall sign a memorandum on Russia’s assistance to Belarus on joining the WTO.”

He continued saying that Minsk is satisfied by how Russia’s joining the WTO is progressing.

“We hope that in 2012 Russia will become a full-fledged member of that organisation.”

From the very beginning the Customs Union and the United Economic Space followed the WTO principles, thus there will not be contradictions with the CU or UES as their member-countries join the WTO, he said. Belarus sets an objective to join the WTO, too, he added. Rumas explained that in January Belarus will activate negotiations on joining the WTO.

“Russia’s joining the WTO confirms that the Customs Union is an integration union, and its principles comply fully with the norms of the WTO.”
