Russia and Georgia will discuss WTO on October 25
The next round of talks on Russia's WTO accession between Russia and Georgia is scheduled for October 25. As reported by the GHN, it will be held in Geneva (Switzerland). As the deputy head of the Georgian Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadze explained in an interview with reporters at a briefing, the talks will be attended by regular composition of Georgian delegation.
"The main problem is that Russia opposes Georgia's proposal - to conduct monitoring at the Russian-Georgian border, which should be carried out by international observers. It is our fundamental requirement. As soon as Russia is ready to accept this proposal, we will be ready to agree to Russia's entry into the WTO", said Kalandadze. She also explained the issue of so-called international community's pressure on the issue of Russia's WTO accession.
"As for speculation about the fact that international community puts pressure on Georgia for Russia's WTO accession, it is not true. The international community respects our request", said the deputy head of the Georgian Foreign Ministry.
