Russia wants to join FAO - Lavrov
The Russian government has decided to send to the president a proposal for Russia's joining the charter of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a government meeting on Thursday the Soviet Union was once a founder of FAO, but did not join the organization.

However, "we are at present at a stage when all interested departments support Russia's accessions to FAO; all benefits of it are apparent," Lavrov said.

He added that Russia as a country founder of FAO "simply notifies it" for accession.

The UN Food and Agriculture Organization attends to agriculture, forestry and fisheries, and Russia's "staying away from it hardly meets our interests," Lavrov said.

The membership in FAO will also allow Russia to cooperate with other countries in the struggle against epidemics, including the mad cow disease, bird flu, the foot and mouth disease and others.

Besides, FAO "opens new possibilities of international cooperation for Russia, including in the organization of consultations, the use of all documentation of FAO, the participation in concrete projects, in particular in numerous progressive technologies, the familiarisation with which will not do harm us", Lavrov said.

He said Russia's participation in FAO would allow activating its foreign trade relations, including with Central and Eastern European countries.

FAO comprises 187state members. "We are almost the sole one who does not participate in the organization", except for Belarus that has applied for the membership in FAO, Lavrov said.
