RUSSIA/POLAND: Top Russian vet says it's too early restart meat imports
A top Russian vet has said that it is too early for Russia to restart imports of meat from Poland, according to the Interfax news agency.
"It's premature to talk about restarting trade until experts work out the details of the problem and Polish imports meet Russian requirements," said Sergei Dankvert, head of the Federal Veterinary and Plant Sanitary Control Oversight
Russia banned imports of meat and some kinds of meat products from Poland on 10 November over alleged violations of Russian veterinary legislation and falsification of veterinary certificates. A ban on plant-product imports was introduced on 14 November because of alleged violations of Russian veterinary requirements.
