MOSCOW, July 19 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s agricultural authority, Rosselhoznadzor, will discuss on July 22 with American counterparts resuming of supplies of American meat to the Russian Federation.
“During a telephone discussion, due on Monday, July 22, we plan to discuss joint efforts to resume supplies of American pork, beef and turkey to the Russian Federation,” the authority’s press service said.
Rosselhoznadzor introduced limitations for import of turkey from the US on September 11, 2012. The limitations, both for turkey and for products made of it, were introduced due to use in the use of beta-adrenaline stimulators, which are forbidden for use in Russia and other countries of the Customs Union. On February 4, 2013, the authority also banned supplies of beef and pork from the US.
The watchdog is ready to meet interests of the American side and to resume import of American meat, if the United States provides guarantees of its “veterinary purity.”
A veterinary certificate should contain confirmations that the beef had been tested on ractopamine, and all the tests are to be undertaken at the expense of the American side, head of Rosselhoznadzor Alexei Alekseyenko said.
