VILNIUS, October 9 (Itar-Tass) - Lithuania has provided the European Commission (EC) with all the information necessary to turn to the World Trade Organization (WTO) for assistance in the wake of Russia’s ban on the import of Lithuanian dairy products, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius told journalists on Wednesday.
He recalled that Vilnius could appeal to the WTO only through the European Commission.
“According to the effective EU procedure, foreign trade issues are a competence of the European Commission, which protects the interests of its member-states,” Linkevicius said.
He also added that Vilnius maintained regular contact with Brussels in connection with what he described as a politically motivated ban on the import of dairy products from Lithuania to Russia.
“We are doing everything possible to provide the European Commission with information needed to appeal to the WTO,” Linkevicius said. He hopes the EC will do so next week.
