Serbia may restrict imports from (FYR) Macedonia in retaliation for that country’s curbs on wheat and flour imports from Serbia, the Belgrade-based Trade Ministry said.Serbian sales of wheat and flour to (FYR) Macedonia have halved to less than 20 million euros ($27 million) a year since the neighboring nation introduced seasonal restrictions on imports in 2010, Ivan Markovic, an adviser at the ministry, said by phone.“They keep them in place for a few months, right after the harvest, when it’s crucial time for our exports,” Markovic said.
