Poland: no WTO for Russia if ban is not lifted
Poland is thinking of vetoing Russia's accession to the
World Trade Organization (WTO) if the world's largest country continues to ban
imports of Polish meat.
In a Swiss newspaper, Polish president Lech Kaczynski said he was considering
this move by the European Union in order to finally come to a solution for the
problem created by the ban.
For 17 months now, Russia has been
banning imports of Polish meat and other agricultural products. According to
Russian health authorities, these products do not meet Russia's quality
requirements; in addition, the Russians claim certificates have been falsified.
Both Poland and the EU think that
the trade problems are related to political motives.
