Turkey may withdraw additional requirements to grain supplies from Russia


Turkey is ready to give up on its regulation complicating Russian agricultural deliveries, in particular those of wheat and vegoils, said the Russian vice premier.

The Russian party has been assured by the Turkish colleagues that the previously announced procedure requiring the certification of crop supply invoices at Turkish consulates in Russia would not be actually applied, provided positive steps are made by both parties in other fields.

Noteworthy is that the Russian government has officially permitted Turkish tomato imports within a volume approved by the Ag Ministry.

The co-chairman of the Russo-Turkish intergovernmental commission previously reported that delivery of 50 KMT of Turkish tomatoes to Russia had been approved by relevant agencies and may start from November 1. The tomatoes are to come from four Turkish companies.

According to traders, the imposition of the additional requirements is postponed for a month, reports UkrAgroConsult. However, they are already partially in force with regard to grain, though relevant contracts are executed with no particular constraints, market players say.
