Kremlin: Moscow in talks with Turkey after curbs on Russian wheat
MOSCOWRussia is in contact with Turkey after Ankara imposed restrictions on Russian wheat supplies, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on May 24, Reuters has reported.
Peskov said Turkey’s move may have been prompted by remaining limits maintained by Moscow on exports of some vegetables from Turkey to Russia.
Turkey was reported to have resumed wheat imports from Russia on May 11, just a few days after the trade dispute between the two countries was largely settled.
Peskov also said he does not yet know anything about the restrictions imposed by Turkey on sunflower oil from Russia, state news agency TASS reported.
“So far I have not received such information. That is rather a question that should be addressed to the government, so I would not comment now,” he added.
