Supply Of Products From the EU to Be Discussed
January 25, 2015 17:57


The Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance is negotiating the renewal of import of certain products from the European Union.

“We talk, however, about the products not included into the sanctions lists”. This was announced by the Assistant of the Head of the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia Aleksey Alekseenko. “The European Union sent us a request for renewal of deliveries of a wide range of products, mostly affected by sanctions. And we are working on the positions not included into the sanctions lists. These are beef byproducts, certain pork products, as well as seed potatoes” - RIA Novosti quoted Alekseenko.

He explained the lifting of the embargo is not discussed. According to Alekseenko, negotiations concern the resumption of supplies of products not included into this list, but prohibited to be imported for other reasons.

Earlier the European Commission authorized representative Enrico Brivio said that the EC and Russia prepared the agreements reached last week in order to resume supplies of a number of animal products to Russia. He explained that the possible resumption of supplies of some European products to Russia was discussed within the “Green Week” forum for food and agriculture in Berlin. He added that the results of these negotiations were “positive”. “To implement this, the results of these negotiations are being worked through right now and in the nearest days” - Brivio said on Tuesday at a briefing in Brussels. Last week the Agriculture Minister Nikolai Fedorov said in an interview to “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” that during the “Green Week” forum several European countries, particularly Germany and the Netherlands, asked Russia to loosen the food embargo. “I had not even a five-minute break, colleagues asked to meet me. And you know, none of my interlocutors wants to continue the difficult political situation around Russia, nobody wants any sanctions” – Fedorov reported.
