MOSCOW, December 3. /TASS/. Russia may resume imports of meat products from two Belarusian enterprises, the country’s veterinary regulator said on Wednesday. But control will be "much tougher" to enforce quality and safety standards, Russia's agriculture watchdog warned Wednesday.

The move may lift a ban imposed on several plants in the autumn over safety standards after inspections showed microbiological contamination, traces of antibiotics and African Swine Fever genome in meat imports.

“We are talking in the first place about opening two enterprises under certain conditions,” agency head Sergei Dankvert told TASS, adding that conditions for resumed trade would be discussed on Thursday.

Belarusian inspectors must ensure that products meet standards of quality and safety effective inside Russia, Dankvert said. “I am sure we will create conditions for enterprises to resume trade but these conditions will be much tougher,” Dankvert said, noting that access of Belarusian meat products to the Russian market would not happen fast.
