Vashadze: Russia will not enter in WTO without Georgia’s consent

2010-12-28 13:11

11844.jpegHead of Georgian MFA Grigol Vashadze has stated that Russia won't be able to become member of the World Trade Organization until it aligns all the differences with Tbilisi.


"Russia is not going to enter WTO neither at the expense of Georgia's interests, nor in violation of the organization's by-laws", - Vashadze is cited by Trend.

He also underlined that the possible restoration of the diplomatic relationship between Moscow and Tbilisi is possible only with the "de-occupation of the Georgian territories".

Georgia's discontent at Russia's joining the World Trade Organization may be ignored. This fact was stated by well-known Georgian economical expert Levan Kalandadze.

According to Rosbalt, Kalandadze has outlined that the official Tbilisi's opinion will have weight only if supported by Georgia's partners, the U.S. and Europe. "Without the partners' support, our position will resemble a voice in the wilderness. Just stamping one's foot won't bring any positive result", - the expert said.

"If the U.S. and Europe's leading countries do not support Georgia's position, Moscow will become a WTO member, which is a material threat", - he said, having underlined that Russia's membership in the World Trade Organization is very much desired both for the Americans and the Europeans.

Kalandadze also underlined that Georgia should develop a new strategy in respect of Russia's entrance in WTO to have an opportunity to demand Moscow's fulfillment of its obligations in respect of Tbilisi as an equal partner in this organization.
