BERLIN, August 29. /ITAR-TASS/. The European Union is planning to lodge a complaint at the World Trade Organization (WTO) about Russia's embargo on the import of European foodstuffs as a measure to reciprocate the West's sanctions over the situation in Ukraine, EU Commissioner for Trade Karel De Gucht said in an interview to the German newspaper Frankfurter Algemeine Zeitung. Excerpts from the interview were published on the newspaper's website on Thursday night.
"We are preparing a possible complaint," the paper quotes the EU Commissioner as saying. He said a complaint might be filed as early as in mid-September. A final decision, though, has not been made so far, he added.
Earlier reports had it that Brussels intended to apply to the WTO in a request to hold consultations in view of Russia's embargo.
