Russia promises to complain to WTO about US import metal duties

MOSCOW, Apr 3 (PRIME) -- Russia plans to file a complaint to the World Trade Organization (WTO) against WashingtonТs decision to introduce import duties on steel and aluminum, but does not plan any direct countermeasures, Deputy Industry and Trade Minister Viktor Yevtukhov told reporters on Tuesday.

УThe issue here is not only in introduction of retaliatory duties, there is a negotiation process going on here. That was the first thing. The second thing here is that there is a dispute settlement body within the WTO, and we can file a complaint there. I am sure that our country will file it. We wonТt necessarily introduce retaliatory duties,Ф Yevtukhov said.

In March, the U.S. imposed a 25% duty on steel and a 10% duty on aluminum imported from all over the world. Introduction of duties on imports from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, South Korea, and the E.U. was delayed until May 1. On Monday, China responded by slapping duties on 128 goods imported from the U.S.
