RIGA, August 2. /TASS/. Russia sent recommendations to Turkey on security measures required to restore charter air traffic between the countries, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told TASS on Tuesday.
"We resumed regular flights to Turkey and sent our recommendations on security measures for charters to Turkish colleagues. These recommendations have already been taken in at the political level," the official said.
Representatives of competent Russian authorities will visit Turkey to look at progress in implementing these recommendations, Dvorkovich said. "Then it will be the question of airline and travel companies to the extent of their ability to quickly restore old logistical schemes. This will take some time," he added.
Resumption of foods import from Turkey is under discussion also, Dvorkovich said. "We are analyzing the situation on each specific products. Guarantees of safety and quality of such products are meant," he said. Russian consumer rights and phytosanitary regulators "should take appropriate steps and hold inspections regarding access of foods to the Russian market," he added.
Russia banned import of certain agricultural products from Turkey since January 1, 2016. Charter air traffic with Turkey is closed from late October 2015.
