MOSCOW, November 8 (Itar-Tass) - Officials from Russia’s veterinary inspection service have finally won a date from U.S. counterparts for a mission to inspect poultry-processing plants wanting to supply Russia and its Customs Union (CU) partners in Belarus and Kazakhstan.
Delay on the American side has stalled a Russian request since July. But after telephone contact with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS), Russia's Rosselkhoznadzor agency announced on Friday that the inspection will take place between December 9 and December 20.
U.S. officials had pledged to provide advance information and engage in technical consultations ahead of the trip by the middle of next week, the agency added.
“Rosselkhoznadzor has received the lists of enterprises recommended by the U.S. for inspection and not included in the register of third country enterprises entitled to supply goods to Russia and other CU countries," the Russian service said. "Rosselkhoznadzor is ready to submit its proposals to the FSIS for checking enterprises already delivering products to the CU as well as a confirmed list of separate enterprises from the list proposed by the American side,” a spokesman said.
