PARIS, August 07, /ITAR-TASS/. French Minister of Agriculture, Agribusiness and Forestry Stephane Le Foll is holding consultations with representatives of the German and Polish leadership on Russia’s ban on agricultural products from European Union in response to Western sanctions over Ukraine, the ministry reports.
Talks are conducted “with an aim to work out common position” on the ban, the ministry report said. “The French minister (who is also government spokesperson) also appealed to EU Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development Dacian Ciolos with a request to determine the scope of possible impact of Russian embargo on EU member countries,” the report added.
President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday signed a decree on countermeasures to Western sanctions, which prohibits or restricts, for one year, the import of certain kinds of agricultural products, raw materials and food originating in a country that has imposed economic sanctions against Russian companies and (or) individuals or has joined such sanctions.
