Kremlin confirms restrictions on Russian wheat supply to Turkey
Russia and Turkey are negotiating restrictions on the supply of agricultural products, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"Indeed, there are restrictions," the Kremlin spokesman said commenting on the newly introduced Turkish restrictions on supplies of wheat from Russia.
At the same time, Peskov noted, "some restrictions on deliveries of certain goods from Turkey from the Russian side remain for known reasons, which were explained in great detail to the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan during recent contacts with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Sochi."
"We are in negotiations with the Turkish side," TASS cited Peskov as saying.
Peskov said he does not yet know about the restrictions imposed by Turkey on sunflower oil from Russia. "So far, I have not received such information, it is rather a question that should be addressed to the government, so I would not comment now," he said.
