Paris Club Debts

n MOSCOW () -- Russia and the Paris Club of creditor nations must still work out some issues before Russia will join the organization, First Deputy Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin said.

"In the ongoing consultations in Paris with the nation-members of the club, it is planned to discuss a number of unsolved questions," Kudrin said late Tuesday without elaboration. "A final signing date will be determined after their resolution."

Kudrin declined to specify what issues were to be discussed or who had raised them. He also declined to comment on the state of negotiations and did not predict when Russia would join the Paris Club.

Kudrin had said Sept. 1 that Russia would sign an agreement in Paris to join the club within two weeks.
