Vice Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov attended the meeting and confirmed the country's interest in decreasing duties on Iranian imports.
“It will be worked out in January in a most serious manner,” Shuvalov said. “We hope that in the near future our colleagues on the committee will review the issue.”
The head of Russia's Ministry of Economic Development, Alexey Ulyukayev, discussed a similar project with Iran's Minister of Industry, Mines and Trade, Mohammed Reza Nematzadeh. The minister then said that the possibility of reducing duties for Iran was possible, but that the EAEC has the final say.
Ulyukayev said that increased Iranian exports; including tomatoes, citrus fruits, dates, cucumbers as well as various types of nuts and vegetable products, was a potential prospect. He added that this issue will not conflict with the norms of the World Trade Organization.
