MOSCOW, September 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia has got to master a qualitative use of the mechanism for settling trade disputes within the framework of the World Trade Organizaion (WTO), Russian Economic Development Minister Alexey Ulyukayev said Thursday at a session of the State Council.
"We should master a qualitative use of the mechanism for settling trade disputes within the WTO framework," Ulyukayev said. "We are currently involved in two such trade disputes within the scope of the WTO. One of them deals with the third energy package which as a matter of fact discriminates against suppliers of Russia's gas, oil, and petroleum products to European markets, and the other one is the so-called energy package which enables our partners to resort to dumping procedures connected with the use of oil and gas resources in the petrochemical sector".
Besides, the minister expects that the use of this mechanism will come in handy to Russia in the fields of the manufacture of lightweight commercial trucks and agriculture.
