ISTANBUL, October 6. /TASS/. Russia and the European Union finds certain understanding in their Third Energy Package related dispute but Russia has not withdrawn its claims from the WTO, Russia’s Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukayev said on Tuesday after the bilateral meeting with the EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom.
"We also note progress in energy area. We understand this is the way taking months and years but it is important we are progressing," the minister said.
"Colleagues are now having more understanding from standpoint of alternatives to energy supplies to Europe," Ulyukayev added.
This does not mean Russia will withdraw its claims from the WTO, the minister said.
The parties note positive trends in respect of other disputes. In particular, this refers to claims regarding pork, light commercial vehicles and tariffs on agricultural and industrial products. "May be not so quickly, but progress appears in areas we consider promising," Ulyukayev added.
