MOSCOW, November 24. /TASS/. Turkey has practically abolished further complications for supplies of Russian agricultural products, now there is no excessive "red tape", Deputy Agriculture Minister of Russia Evgeny Gromyko told TASS.
"Procedural complications are practically canceled at the moment. Perhaps there are flaws and nuances left somewhere, but almost all issues are resolved, there is no excessive red tape now," he said.
Gromyko noted that the Turkish side agreed with cancelling additional invoice certification. "Maybe there are formal signs left, but we have no confirmation from business representatives that this constitutes a serious problem and hinders contracts," he added.
In October 2017, Turkey imposed new restrictions on agricultural products from Russia, which affect exports of wheat, unrefined sunflower oil, corn and other products. According to additional requirements, suppliers need to certify invoices. Russian Minister of Agriculture Alexander Tkachev noted that Russia hoped for a complete lifting of restrictions against Russian agricultural producers.
