Trade secretary Rahul Khullar said on Friday said it will not be possible to conclude the Doha round of world trade talks in either 2011 or 2012.

The Doha round was launched in late 2001 with the goal of helping poor countries prosper through trade.

But members have disagreed over how much rich countries should cut farm subsidies and tariffs on farm and manufactured goods in exchange for developing countries opening their own markets in agriculture, manufacturing and services.
