The Kremlin commented on the possibility of the US withdrawing from the WTO
A spokesman for Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that if the United States withdraws from the WTO, the existence of the organization will be in great doubt.
“Certainly, the existence of, let's say, the backbone economic organization of the world after the world's largest economy leaves it will be a big question, it’s obvious ... In any case, this is an internal US affair,” Peskov said.
Earlier, President of the United States Donald Trump said that the country would withdraw from the World Trade Organization "if necessary." As the American leader said during a speech in Pennsylvania, WTO rules allow other countries to "use the United States."
According to him, the United States in almost all cases lost in the WTO.
In July, Trump ordered the US trade mission to review the status of some developing countries in the World Trade Organization.
