U.S. negotiating with WTO countries on Russia's possible future in the organization - White House

WASHINGTON. March 8 (Interfax) - The United States remains in touch with the World Trade Organization (WTO) member states regarding Russia's membership in it, White House Spokesperson Jen Psaki said.

U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai remains in touch with the other WTO countries, the U.S. will continue these negotiations, and this step would not be made unilaterally by the U.S., Psaki told journalists on Tuesday.

It emerged in early March that the European Union was considering depriving Russia of most-favored nation status in the WTO. This measure has been applied by Canada.
