OTTAWA, March 06, /ITAR-TASS/. Canada suspends its membership in the Russian-Canadian intergovernmental economic commission tasked to promote bilateral economic relations, Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Wednesday.
Set up in October 1995, the commission has six working groups, namely on cooperation in the mining sector, on agrarian issues, on construction, on cooperation in the Arctic, on cooperation in the fuel and energy sector, and on space. Co-chairmen of the Russian-Canadian intergovernmental economic commission are Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich and Canadian Minister of International Trade Edward Fast. The ninth session of the commission was held in Moscow in June 2013.
