CAIRO, September 19. /TASS/. The talks between Moscow and Cairo on the terms of exports of Egyptian agricultural products do not focus on the issue of wheat imports from Russia, according to Al Watan newspaper, which said that the negotiations that will be held in Moscow to settle the problems related to Russian phytosanitary regulator’s restrictions on supplies of agricultural products from Egypt, will not focus on wheat, "which Egypt will further on purchase from Russia."
As was reported earlier Egypt imposed a requirement of total absence of spurred rye in the imported wheat, which makes it impossible for Russia to supply grain to the country. Earlier supplies of wheat containing spurred rye in the amount not more than 0.05% were allowed.
Following Egypt’s request Russia’s Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) said it had reserved the right to impose temporary restrictions on supplies of quarantinable products from Egypt to the country in order to prevent spreading of quarantinable objects inside the Russian Federation. Particularly, Rosselkhoznadzor expressed disquiet due to systemic violations of international and Russian phytosanitary requirements to imports of quarantinable products from Egypt ahead of mass supplies of citrus fruits. According to the regulator, the Egyptian side has failed to assume proper measure to settle the issue despite Russia’s numerous requests.
The total volume of agricultural products exported from Egypt to Russia is estimated at $350 mln per year.
