How will the dispute with Belarus within the framework of the Customs Union on negotiations to join the World Trade Organization?
Maxim Medvedkov said, "The addition of Belarus to the WTO on a coordinated basis — a part of our common task. Without the participation of all countries Union to the WTO, we can not quickly solve important for its development objectives. The speed of this process depends largely on the efforts of the country, which is attached. Many of the key WTO members believe that Belarus should become a member of the WTO, support this process. I think that a breakthrough will be when colleagues fulfill their homework — conduct and complete the reform of its legislation that has to do with membership in the WTO. It had to do all countries , who join in including Russia and Kazakhstan. By the way, the Belarusians are in pole position as the foreign trade regulation issued at the level of Union and, in this article we will deal we do together. "
