Russia and the EU are expected to sign an agreement on Russia’s WTO membership at the Russia-EU summit on December 7, Deputy Head of the European Union delegation in Moscow, Michael Webb, tells the chief editor of RussiaProfile.org, Andrei Zolotov. The EU’s role in Russian modernization will be another major topic for discussion at the summit, as well as energy supplies. “We were very pleased to notice recent statements on the Russian side that they don’t expect any problems in the delivery of gas from Russia to the EU this winter,” – Webb said. The sides are also expected to agree on a timetable of measures aimed at waiving the visa regime between Russia and the EU – a long-time a priority for Russia and something the EU diplomat has described as a “breakthrough.’
