U.S.-India deal is major step for WTO trade talks: Azevedo

GENEVA (Reuters) - A breakthrough in trade talks between India and the United States is a significant step in efforts to get the world trading system “back on track”, World Trade Organization Director General Roberto Azevedo said on Thursday.

If ratified by all WTO members, the India-U.S. deal would revive a global trade agreement done in Bali, Indonesia, last December, which would be a “major boost to the WTO”, Azevedo said in a statement.
