MOSCOW, December 15. /TASS/. Russia is negotiating meat supplies to Iran and China, Minister of Agriculture Nikolay Fedorov said in an interview with TASS on Monday.
“We have been working with the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East regions. Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Vietnam, China — those countries are of interest for us,” he said in response to the question about possible meat and poultry exports from Russia.
Talks on the topic do continue, though opening new export markets is not of an urgent character, the minister said. “We do not face the problem of exporting our products like producers in the US or Canada do. In those countries, farmers are throwing away products as they cannot sell them after the unfriendly actions of their governments against Russia,” the minister said.
The minister said the priority under the existing embargo is to have sufficient food market inside the country.
