MOSCOW, August 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's agricultural standards agency has called on domestic and foreign importers operating in Russia to choose new countries to supply them, an official said on Friday.

“We have invited importers to discuss the possibility of opening new markets,” Rosselkhoznadzor spokeswoman Yulia Trofimova said, reporting plans by agency chief Sergey Dankvert to meet foreign trade operators in the wake of Russia's ban on produce from Western countries imposing sanctions over events in Ukraine.

“We want to know which countries our importers are interested in,” she said. “Emphasis is firstly on those who buy meat and dairy products.”

Dankvert said on Thursday that Russia should reduce its dependence on food imports from the European Union and the United States. “We started making arrangements for that long ago,” he said.
