GORKI, February 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has demanded ensuring that the Russian agrarians' interests are not impaired in the establishment of a Free Trade Area (FTA) with New Zealand.
"Everything must be rational, proceeding from the interests of our producers," Medvedev emphasized on Thursday during a hook-up conference on matters regarding the development of agriculture.
Commenting on Agriculture Minister Nikolai Fyodorov's misgivings that the establishment of an FTA may impair Russia's agriculture, the prime minister said: "Submit your proposals, and we shall mull how to combine all that with our plans for trade cooperation". The head of the government pointed out that he had already spoken about this many times with the prime minister of New Zealand.
