India Initiates WTO Dispute Against Turkey

According to the WTO website, “[o]n 13 February 2012, India requested consultations with Turkey under the dispute settlement system concerning the latter’s safeguard measures on import of cotton yarn (other than sewing thread).” More information, as and when available, can be found here (DS428).

It is interesting to recall that India and Turkey have had a previous dispute regarding certain quantitative restrictions imposed by Turkey on the imports of certain textile and clothing products from India (DS34). That dispute was finally decided by the Appellate Body on 22 October 1999.
