MOSCOW, December 31. /TASS/. Belarus and Kazakhstan have given assurances to Moscow they will not permit deliveries of banned produce from the EU to Russia, Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily Nebenzya said in an exclusive interview with TASS.
"It's difficult enough to rule out unscrupulous actions on the part of separate companies in the conditions of a common market if they decide to make extra profits on the re-exports of banned produce to Russia," he said.
"The presidents of Belarus and Kazakhstan tell us any such actions will be cut short and we're grateful to them for their assistance," Nebenzya said.
He said along with it Moscow was fully satisfied with the way collaboration with its partners in the Eurasian Economic Union was unfolding.
“They expressed solidarity with us, saying the restrictive measures introduced by Moscow contradict the norms and principles of international law and are not efficacious as a means of achieving objectives in the world of nowadays,” Nebenzya said.
