Russia is ready to cooperate with the newly-appointed Director-General of the World Trade Organisation, (WTO) Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, whose experience and authority will allow her successfully resolve topical issues.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that Economic Development Minister Maksim Reshetnikov said on Tuesday.
Mrs Okonjo-Iweala, a Nigerian economist, made history on Monday becoming the first-ever woman and African to head the WTO.
“We intend to constructively cooperate with the new director-general, assist her in efforts to improve the organisation for the benefit of its members, and improve the efficiency of regular work and negotiations at the WTO,’’ Mr Reshetnikov said, as cited in the ministry’s press release.
The minister recalled that Russia consistently advocated for the early appointment of a new WTO head and actively participated in consultations with other members of the organisation on this issue.
