Russia’s agriculture safety watchdog said on March 28 that it is to allow tomato imports from two more Turkish firms as of March 29. This will take to twelve the number of Turkish producers authorised to supply tomatoes to Russia. The Turkish finance minister, Nihat Zeybekci has said her government is absolutely against Russia’s setting of limits and has threatened to respond in kind. In October 2017, Russia agreed to lift its restrictions on the import of Turkish tomatoes. However, Moscow has continued to implement import quotas.
