MOSCOW, September 23. /TASS/. Restricted fruits from Egypt may be replaced with similar products from Morocco, Syria and Iran, press service of Russia’s Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) reported Friday.
"Egyptian fruits that has been put on the banned list may be replaced with similar ones from Morocco, Syria and Iran," the report said.
According to the report, Russia has sufficient reserves of potatoes while its tomato imports from Egypt are minor.
As was reported earlier Russia’s Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) had decided to impose temporary restrictions on imports of plant products from Egypt starting September 22 due to continuing supplies of quarantineable products unsafe from the phytosanitary viewpoint, which violates international and Russian laws.
In 2016, a total of 47 cases of supplies of diseased plant products from Egypt to Russia were revealed.
The restrictions will be in force until the Egyptian side assumes efficient measures to ensure phytosanitary safety of products.
