US no mediator in Russia's WTO bid


The US intentionally refuses to mediate in Russia’s tug-of-war with Georgia over Moscow’s longstanding bid to join the WTO.

President Obama’s senior adviser Mike McFaul said in Washington on Friday that America was against attempts to politicize to debate and use it as a means to solve other problems.

Mr. McFaul also said President Obama was personally dealing with the issue.

Georgia is against the idea of Russia joining the world trade body, demanding that its customs officials be allowed to man the Russian-Abkhazian border.
