MOSCOW, March 23. /TASS/. Turkey's Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador to Russia Huseyin Dirioz hopes that the Russian-Turkish trade crisis that arose after Turkey suspended duty-free imports of Russian agricultural products will be resolved in the near future. In an interview with TASS he said:
"I think that such issues will ultimately be resolved by the efforts of the two countries, and we would very much like our trade relations to evolve the same way as our cooperation in the energy sector does. I personally do hope that this will happen and in the near future this issue will be resolved."
Turkey excluded Russia from the list of countries free of duties for imports of agricultural products starting March 15.
Now, Russia and some other countries are not on the list of states with duty-free imports that can deliver commodities for further processing and export free of payment of the duty amounting to 130%. Previously Russian exporters and their Turkish customers imported grain meant for processing and further export with zero duty, while they still had to pay a 130% duty in order to sell products locally.
