MOSCOW, October 13. /TASS/. Russia has requested explanations from Turkey on new export restrictions, Deputy Economic Development Minister Aleksei Gruzdev said Friday, adding that the Turkish side has already submitted certain documents.
"They [Russia’s trade mission in Turkey - TASS] has made a request. We will obtain explanations within days. Certain documents have already been sent, and we are analyzing them now," he said.
When asked whether Russia may take tit-for-tit measures, Gruzdev said that first of all the reasons should be clarified, and "whether those restrictions are in line with the whole situation."
Earlier Turkey imposed additional requirements to Russia’s imports of agricultural products. Exporters of unrefined sunflower oil, corn, dry peas, unshelled rice, sunflower oil cake and durum wheat will not have to make additional certification of VAT invoices.
