Moscow, August 14 – AIF-Moscow.
The head of the international committee of the Federation Council, Konstantin Kosachev, said that the United States seeks to write rules for the global economy for all countries, and leaving the WTO is another threat to the world from Washington, RIA Novosti reports.

Kosacheva recalled that “five years ago, the previous President Obama said: when 95% of our potential buyers live abroad, we must be sure that we are writing the rules for the global economy, and not for a country like China.”
According to the head of the international committee of the Federation Council, then this statement made a lot of noise, but was perceived as an element of a bilateral US-Chinese dispute on trade issues.
“The current US administration not only raises the problem from the bilateral to the global level, but also openly states that the Americans have not been“ written the law, ”said Kosachev.
Earlier it was reported that the First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs Dmitry Novikov believes that the statements by US President Donald Trump about a possible withdrawal from the WTO are aimed at fulfilling his election promises.
