Russia puts off its WTO accession till 2008

Russia has got Cambodia support in its joining the WTO. To get to the organization Russia has to secure the Georgia and Saudi Arabias backing.
      Russia and Cambodia have signed the bilateral agreement on Russias accession to the WTO on September 21 in Pnompen (Cambodia).
      Early this year Russia has signed the same agreements with Vietnam and Guatemala. Georgia and Saudi Arabia are the two last countries to accept Russia to the organization.
      Russia has faced some problems with Georgia on this question. In return to its signature Georgia asks legalization of borderline customs checkpoints in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Russia considers that Georgia manipulates with the issue which doesnt relate to the WTO acceptance criteria at all.
      The Ministry of Economical Development claims Russia can join the WTO by the end of 2007. Still Alexander Zhukov, the vice president the Russian Government, has more realistic point of view and stated at the International Investment Forum in Sochi on September 21, that some questions concerning export customs, veterinary and phytosanitary control were not solved yet and could hinder Russias accession.
