MOSCOW, August 14, /ITAR-TASS/. Belarus has promised Russia to take efforts to prevent re-export of foods that fall under Russia’s imports ban, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said on Wednesday.
“We have an absolutely clear agreement with Belarus not to let re-export from countries subject to our economic restrictions,” he told the Russia 24 television channel.
He said that Russian wanted similar guarantees from other European countries that were not members of the European Union and hence, could export their foods to Russia. “The same will be applicable to Serbia and Switzerland,” Dvorkovich said, adding that Russia expected Kazakhstan to refrain from re-exports to Russia.
