Regular Round Of Russia's Talks With WTO Ending In Geneva

A regular round of talks between Russia and the WTO, which is nearing completion in Geneva, must make it possible to switch over to the solution of practical questions of its entry into the World Trade Organisation. The results of the series of talks between the Russian delegation with Russia's principal commercial partners and of the last Friday informal meeting on the questions of agriculture with the interested members of the Working Group on Russia's WTO membership with the participation of the representatives of 30 WTO member countries will be summed up in the course of the informal meeting of the Working Group, scheduled for Monday. As is expected, the date of a WTO official meeting on the whole complex of questions of Russia's joining the WTO will be fixed at today's informal meeting of the Working Group which includes about 50 WTO member states.
