Turkey says Russian wheat imports resumed

Tags: , ,


Turkey resumed wheat imports from Russia on 8 May,just a few days after the trade dispute between the two countries was settled. Turkey, traditionally the second-largest importer of Russian wheat after Egypt and the top buyer of its sunflower oil, had imposed what Moscow regarded as prohibitively high import tariffs from mid-March.

“Wheat imports from Russia to Turkey began on Monday,” the Agriculture Minister Zeybekci said.

Russian wheat and sunflower oil are again being sold to buyers in Turkey, a Russian lobby group of grain exporters and the union of sunflower oil producers also said on Thursday.

A Turkish flour miller said that “all hurdles” had been lifted on Russian wheat imports. Wheat could be imported without customs duties “from any origin”.
Russia, one of the world’s largest wheat exporters, is expected to speed up its grain exports in the coming weeks due to resumed supplies to Turkey and also due to the rouble currency weakening.
