Biden urges repeal of Jackson-Vanik amendment

The New York Times quoted Monday US Vice President Joe Biden as urging the Obama Administration to do more to repeal the Jackson-Vanik amendment and support Russia’s WTO bid.

Biden, who paid a two-day visit to Russia late last week, also stressed the importance of deepening trade and economic collaboration between Moscow and Washington, which he said is still tarnished by the Jackson-Vanik amendment.
