The USSR adheres to the idea of mutually advantageous, businesslike, and equitable interstate relations, this approach being our country's consistent, long-term policy.

Socialist countries are its major trade partners. Close economic ties between the socialist countries make it possible to solve their urgent economic problems and meet their demands for the basic types of products. In particular, the USSR acts as a principal supplier of timber and pulp-and-paper goods for the CMEA countries, meeting, as it does, more than 90% of their export demands in timber and about 50% in pulp and paper.

The manufacture of necessary products and their marketing are both developing successfully, owing to a rapid internationalization of economic activities and to growing integration and cooperation, in the context of the socialist countries' joint economic efforts. Development of trade, in particular in timber and the products of its processing, is undergoing a great impetus due to the abundance of this raw material in the USSR and to its rather short supply in other CMEA countries.
