MOSCOW, July 26. /TASS/. Russian veterinary and phytosanitary service Rosselkhoznadzor is considering an opportunity of lifting restrictions on Turkish products deliveries to Russia imposed earlier, official spokesperson of the regulator Yulia Melano told TASS on Tuesday.
"Rosselkhoznadzor is examining offline the issue of lifting restrictions on import of Turkish foods imposed earlier by the service," Melano said.
Rosselkhoznadzor banned import of certain vegetable products in spring 2016. Import of bell pepper, pomegranates, aubergines, lettuce, Iceberg lettuce, marrow squashes and pumpkins was prohibited.
The regulator also considers necessary to resume dialog with Turkish competent authorities in respect of Russian companies desirous of exporting their products to Turkey, particularly meat, poultry and dairy products, the spokesperson said.
"Considering that Russia granted access to its market to Turkish dairy and poultry producers a year earlier, the Russian supervision service waits for a similar step from Turkish colleagues in respect of extending the similar right for supply to Russian companies," Melano added.
