U.S.' withdrawal from WTO to call latter's existence into question - Peskov

MOSCOW. Aug 14 (Interfax) - The United States' withdrawal from the World Trade Organization (WTO) will call the latter's existence into question, but this decision is an internal affair of the U.S., Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said at a press briefing on Wednesday.

"There is no doubt that withdrawal of the world's biggest economy from the core global economic organization will call its existence into question. This is obvious," Peskov said.

"Anyway, this is an internal affair of the United States," he added.

"Russia is a WTO member, with all the consequences that entails," Peskov said.
