Jackson-Vanik amendment to be annulled before this year's end

The Jackson-Vanik amendment with regard to Russia will be annulled before the end of this year. Senator Trent Lott from the state of Mississippi expressed this confidence after the meeting in the Federation Council (the Upper House of the Russian Parliament).

According to him, great attention is paid to this theme, and the work on annulling the amendment is in full swing now so that to remove the problem at all and leave it in the past.

In his tern, chairman of the Upper House's committee for international affairs Mikhail Margelov believes that in the coming months the elections will be the main question for the American senators, and only after them will attention be paid to the annulment of this amendment; he thinks that before the end of the year this problem will be finally solved.

At their meeting the delegations of American senators and their colleagues from Russia discussed the problems of security, trade and economy, as well as cultural and educational contacts.

At this meeting the senators also discussed the problems of control over the disposal and elimination of chemical weapons. As the American side pointed out, it is quite possible that in the future we shall discuss the problem of the control over the elimination of the nuclear weapons in Russia, the agreement on which was achieved at the G-8 summit in Canada.
