Georgia no more an obstacle to WTO entry2011-06-02 17:10
After a conversation behind closed doors between Dmitry Medvedev and Barack Obama held at the time of the G8 summit the events took a drastic turn with Michelin Calmy-Rey, president of the Swiss Confederation representing Moscow's and Tbilisi's interests after the breakdown of diplomatic relations, immediately coming to the capital of Georgia. As we know, Georgian FM stated that Sakartvelo would not hamper Russia's entry into WTO. Yet, all i-s will be dotted in early June.
Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili is planning a visit to Italy on an innocent pretext to take part in the honoring of the 150th anniversary of the Italian republic. Certainly, this is not the main reason, though Italy promises to organize an extraordinarily bright celebration. The bunch that will gather in Rome on June 1-2 is deserves more attention.
Among the guests are Russian president Dmitry Medvedev and US Vice President Joseph Biden.
It is also reported that Biden will have meetings with both leaders - Russian and Georgian presidents. It is clear that Saakashvili and Medvedev won't communicate. Here is a mediatory!
"Vice President Biden and Prime Minister Berlusconi will participate in a trilateral lunch meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. In addition, Vice President Biden will meet with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, - the White House reports on the vice president's travel.
It is clear that official occasions are a very convenient cover for solving crucial issues, and Kremlin knows that too. "A detailed exchange of opinions on most urgent topics of the bilateral and international agenda are expected during scheduled talks with Napolitano (president of Italia - ed) and Berlusconi", - the Kremlin's press service reports. It is not concealed that "particular attention will be paid to matters of cooperation in trade and economy sphere". Evidently, Russia's WTO entry will be discussed. Besides, judging by the expected guests, it will be a substantial talk aimed at a final verdict.
No wonder. Considering that the "kick" was given by US President Barack Obama after a talk at the G8 summit. Summing the results of the meeting behind closed doors, the leaders declared their decision to accelerate talks on Russia's entry to WTO. We already see what this acceleration has given. By all appearances, obstinate Georgia is simply left no chances to hamper Moscow's accession into the World Trade Organization.
