Lavrov: Georgia's Demands not Related with WTO
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 13 Mar.'11 / 22:44

Georgia's demands to deploy its customs officers at Psou and Roki in Abkhazia and South Ossetia, respectively, as a precondition for endorsing Russia's WTO bid has nothing to do with WTO-related issues, Sergey Lavrov, Russia's foreign minister, said.

"If our Georgian counterparts persist on such a politicized position, then we will probably have to solve the issue of WTO accession in other way - without thier [Georgia's] consent. There is such a possibility," Lavrov said in an interview with Moscow-based TV station, Channel 3, on Sunday, Interfax news agency reported.

Georgian and Russian negotiators met at the Swiss mediated talks in Bern on March 10. The next meeting is expected to take place in April.
