MOSCOW, September 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Egypt plans to increase export of fruits and vegetables to Russia amid Moscow’s embargo on the imported Western food, Egyptian Minister of Trade Mounir Fakhry Abdel Nour said Monday.
“Egypt is not only ready to boost export, but seeks to do this. We support Russia in the current circumstances. Egypt is not subjected to pressure and will take steps that correspond to the country’s national interests,” the Egyptian minister said in Moscow.
Last year, Egypt exported to Russia a total of 325,000 tons of potatoes and 230,000 tons of oranges. According to the minister, who leads the delegation of 65 Egyptian exporting companies, Cairo could also supply Russia with pomegranates, apricots, peaches, grapes, as well as tomatoes and cucumbers.
Since March, the United States and the European Union have imposed a series of sanctions against Russia over its stance on the conflict in Ukraine. Moscow has responded by imposing an embargo on food imports from the countries that hit Russia with sanctions.
