YALTA, Ukraine, Oct 1 (Reuters) - The United States has now removed all its objections to Moscow’s long-running bid to join the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin said on Friday.
“I can say that the United States has removed all the questions regarding Russia joining the WTO,” Kudrin said.
Kudrin also said that this year’s inflation in Russia would come in at 8 percent “or a bit more” -- suggesting that it could exceed an already upwardly revised government forecast of 7-8 percent. (Reporting by Olzhas Auyezov; Writing by Toni Vorobyova; Editing by Alfred Kueppers)
