The delegations of Russia and the United States held consultations in the WTO in the framework of the Russian claim to the United States for duties, they have not yielded results and now the case will be heard by panel of arbitrators, said the head of Ministry of economic development of Russia Maxim Oreshkin.

«Standard procedure is that first they are consulted, their content according to the WTO rules can not disclose but I can say that the consultations these were, no they have not given result. This means we then continue to move according to the standard procedure, which may take even several years from the point of view of consideration of the dispute (the panel of arbitrators, ed.), after appeal and so on», — the Minister told reporters on the sidelines of the Eurasian women’s forum.

USA, justifying its steps by reasons of national security, in March imposed import duties on steel supplies in the amount of 25% aluminum — 10%. In relation to the EU and some other countries they came into force in June. Russia, considering America’s actions violate WTO rules, filed a lawsuit in the organization to review these additional duties.
