First step for Turkey to import Russian meat and dairy products

First step for Turkey to import Russian meat and dairy products

Ankara and Moscow reached an initial settlement on the supplies of Russiaís dairy and meat products to the Turkish market, Russiaís state news agency TASS reported.

"There is the first decision on the access of Russia’s meat products to the Turkish market in the framework of an allocated quota but without customs duties. Now talks are underway on how to formalize this decision. I believe such decisions will be reached in the coming weeks," TASS quoted Russiaís Ambassador to Turkey Alexei Yerkhov as saying.

"This is a kind of a breakthrough, we have been trying to reach the Turkish market with our goods and this is very important and great," the ambassador said.

Representatives of the two countries have been discussing the issue of Russian meat supplies to Turkey since 2017, according to the news agency.

The settlement comes after Moscow lifted a number of limitations on Turkish agricultural products, following easing tension between Ankara and Moscow after Turkeyís downing of a Russian jet in November 2015.

In March 2018, Food, Agriculture and Livestock Minister Ahmet Eşref Fakıbaba said Turkey considered importing meat from Russia, but the volume of potential supply would be small.
