GENEVA, June 3 (Reuters) - Ukraine has suspended World Trade Organization litigation that aimed to overturn Australia's strict tobacco packaging laws, according to a communication from the panel of WTO adjudicators published by the WTO on Wednesday.

Ukraine asked the panel to suspend proceedings on May 28, and it will try to find a mutually agreed solution with Australia, the panel said.

Honduras, Cuba, Indonesia and Dominican Republic are also challenging Australia's tobacco laws at the WTO. (Reporting by Tom Miles; Editing by Toby Chopra)
