Turkish Delegation Fails To Get Visas; Unable To Visit Moscow To Discuss Vegetable Exports Featured

27 April 2016

Representatives of Turkey will not be visiting Moscow on April 26 to discuss the situation regarding sanctions on exports to Russia because officials were unable to obtain visas, the deputy head of Russia’s Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance Service (Rosselkhoznadzor) Alexey Alekseyenko told RIA Novosti.

“Negotiations were carried out for technical reasons, they simply failed to get a visa,” he said adding that Turkey is interested in visiting Moscow. “It’s hard to say when negotiations will continue.”

As of January 1 of this year, Turkish products including citrus, grapes, apples, apricots, peaches, including nectarines, plums and sloes, strawberries (including wild strawberries), tomatoes, onions, shallots, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers and gherkins were restricted under Russian sanctions, prohibiting their entry into the country as imports.

The head of Rosselkhoznadzor Sergey Dankvert previously stated that restrictions on other or “all” Turkish plant products are still possible, as cited in an earlier article. He said that such a decision might be justified by the detection of dangerous diseases and pests in imported products or the lack of responsiveness on the part of the Turkey in addressing such concerns.

Subsequent restrictions enacted on March 17 excluded Turkish peppers and grenades. Then earlier this week, Rosselkhoznadzor placed restrictions on eggplants from Turkey.
