MOSCOW, December 10. /TASS/. Russia’s veterinary and phytosanitary watchdog (Rosselkhaznadzor) can shortly open the Russian market for several Belarusian enterprises that were earlier prohibited goods import, member of the Presidium of the Belarusian Council of Ministers Sergey Rumas said on Wednesday.
“I hope that tomorrow Rosselkhoznadzor will be able to open several enterprises, which were ‘closed’ due to objections to Belarusian products quality, to allow them to supply products to the Russian market just within two days,” he said.
There should be no conflict between the two countries. The Russian service’s leadership went beyond its powers by closing the access to the Russian market for Belarusian enterprises, Rumas said.
The Russian service took the decision without discussing the issue at the level of vice-premiers or members of the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission.
“Today we’ll draft a protocol under which such cases will not repeat in principle,” Rumas said. “First Vice-Premier Igor Shuvalov instructed Rosselkhoznadzor to return to the list of banned enterprises for Belarusian veterinary services to change the status of these enterprises in the register book,” he said.
Rumas said it would be more difficult to resume supplies of products where the African swine fever genome was detected.
“Our agencies are conducting laboratory research. No doubt this problem will be solved. The time is indispensable to study how the African swine fever genome can be revealed in Belarusian products,” he said.
