Foreign Media: Extinction of debts strengthens Russian positions in G8

01.01.70

According to The Wall Street Journal the official declaration about Russia readiness to liquidate in advance its debts to the Paris Club will improve other countries' confidence to Russia within its presidency in G8-2006.

"Such measures will also help Russia to reject some western critics that this country is too poor economically to be a member of such exclusive Club", - the newspaper says.

The issues of Russia' debts to the Paris Club and its extinction will be discussed next Friday at the meeting of G8 ministers of finance. Last year Moscow has already repaid in advance 15 billions of its debts.
