IZHEVSK, July 6. /TASS/. Russia is not in a hurry to open its market for Turkey as it needs to support local agricultural producers in the first place, Agriculture Minister Alexander Tkachev said Wednesday.
"Regarding food we are not in a hurry to open our market. The reasons are clear as we first of all have to support our own producers," he said.
"Yesterday Prime Minister (Dmitry Medvedev - TASS) made it clear that the issue is not on today’s agenda at all," Tkachev said, adding though that he personally supports the decision to get the tourist flow from Russia to Turkey back on track. "Yes, regarding (Turkish) resorts we’ve opened this niche as it is a very familiar country, easily understandable for our tourists," he said.
Stating January 1, 2016 Russia imposed a ban on imports of a number of agricultural products from Turkey.
On June 30, Russian President Vladimir Putin cancelled the ban on charter flights between the Russian Federation and the Turkish Republic by signing the amendments to the decree "On measures to ensure the national security of the Russian Federation and protection of citizens of the Russian Federation from criminal and other illegal actions and on the use of special economic measures against the Turkish Republic." Flights to Turkey are expected to be resumed on July 7.
