SANYA, Hainan - Ministers from the BRICS countries expressed their strong support for Russia to join the World Trade Organization in 2011.
It's extremely "unreasonable" for Russia to be excluded in the multilateral trading system 18 years after it applied for joining the WTO, Chinese Commerce Minister Chen Deming said at a joint press conference after the BRICS Economic and Trade Ministers' Meeting in Sanya, Hainan Province on Wednesday.
The ministers emphasized that Russia's accession would make the WTO more representative and expand the influence of the multilateral trading system.
