BEIJING, May 5. /TASS/. The new Trans-Pacific and Trans-Atlantic trade partnerships will affect the interests of other countries, Russian lower house Speaker Sergey Naryshkin said on Thursday.
"It is obvious that the aim of the United States within these structures is to control trade operations of partner countries and, undoubtedly, this will also affect the interests of other states," Naryshkin said after talks with China’s President Xi Jinping.
The positions of China and Russia on the development of these trade agreements coincide, the State Duma speaker said.
"In our opinion, the point at issue is the development of some closed structures, especially considering that the documents are being formed and developed in an atmosphere of secrecy and, moreover, these structures, in our estimates, may in future claim to substitute the WTO rules and standards, with which we, of course, do not agree," Naryshkin said.
According to the State Duma speaker, universal trade rules should be discussed within the WTO with the participation of all interested parties and Russia and China will together uphold this position at various international venues.
