PRAGUE, August 08, /ITAR-TASS/. Czech Prime Minister Boguslav Sobotka on Friday urged EU agriculture ministers to meet shortly to discuss how to mitigate the impact from Russia’s import ban.
“Russia has taken countermeasures, and Europe should agree to a joint response to them. Our goal is to find funding for supporting companies that can be affected by the restrictions,” he said.
Czech Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries Marian Jurecka said he had asked his Italian counterpart Maurizio Martina to organise a meeting of EU agriculture ministers as soon as possible.
“I’ll try to contact my colleagues and suggest that we meet at the earliest opportunity to discuss the situation. We should look for a decision together,” he said.
The Czech Republic put forth this initiative after the EU had initiated an extraordinary meeting of agriculture experts next Thursday, August 14.
