BERLIN, March 21 (Itar-Tass) — European partners are trying to impute provisions stretching far beyond Russia’s duties as a member of the World Trade Organization in the Russia-EU basic treaty, Foreign Ministry Sergei Lavrov said here Wednesday.
“For some unclear reason, our partners in the European Commission are trying to get more from us than what was coordinated in the format of the WTO,” Lavrov said. “Right now at this stage they are not ready to reproduce the terms we agreed on earlier in the chapter of the draft treaty devoted to commerce.”
“This won’t do, or we’ll have to revise the results of our 18-years-long talks on accession to the WTO then,” he said.
