Nebojša Milosavljević said that he shared the concerns articulated by the Rosselkhoznadzor and undertook to hold investigations into all cases of exports of infected products to Russia. He went on to note that Serbia was currently implementing a programme for ensuring safety of products during exports to Russia. Two thousand samples of stone fruits were taken and tested under the programme and four suppliers and two hundred fruit manufacturers were excluded from the lists of entities authorized for trade relations with Russia.

The Rosselkhoznadzor demanded the Serbian side to enforce control over plant products exported to Russia as well as to send the results of the conducted tests and detailed information on the above-mentioned programme with an official letter to the Service.

The Russian Service also stated that it reserved its right to impose temporary restrictions on imports of stone fruits from Serbia (EAEU HS code 0809) should the infected fruit continue to be imported to Russia.

Rosselkhoznadzor took part in the meeting between Co-Presidents of the Intergovernmental Russian-Indian Commission

On July 22, Assistant to the Head of the Rosselkhoznadzor Vasiliy Lavrovsky took part in the meeting of Co-Presidents of the Intergovernmental Russian-Indian Commission on Trade, Economic, Science and Technology Cooperation. Within the framework of the meeting the Russian side was headed by Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Yury Borisov, the Indian side – by a newly appointed External Affairs Minister of the Republic of India Subrahmanyam Jaishankar.

The agenda envisaged discussions of a wide range of trade, economic and investment issues in various industries of Russia and India including cooperation in transport, energy and industry, notably, space. A particular attention was attributed to the state of the Russian-Indian relations in agro-industrial complex. Among other things, the Parties reiterated problematic issues of ensuring veterinary and phytosanitary safety which persisted in mutual trade in agricultural products.

Within the discussion of those questions the Indian Party was presented by Additional Secretary of the Department of Agriculture, Cooperation and Farmers Welfare of the Indian Ministry of Agriculture Alka Bhargava. In her speech, she noted the increase in trade turnover and restated the desires of the Indian business to ameliorate access of Indian buffalo meat, fish and sea products, dairy products and egg powder and to extend the list of exported fruit products. Alka Bhargava mentioned that the Ministry was considering the requests by the Rosselkhoznadzor to harmonize veterinary accompanying documents for poultry meat and by-products, wool and rawhide, feed and feed additives and also fish and sea products and pledged to take a decision on those items.

In his response Vasiliy Lavrovsky drew the attention of the persons present at the meeting to the fact that the trade balance for food products between Russia and India was particularly high (by 10 times) in favour of India. This happens due to excessive SPS requirements of the Indian side (for example, for fumigation of Russian grains with methyl bromide) and unjustified hindering during consideration of Russian requests regarding conditions for exports of Russian livestock products subject to animal health control to India.

Vasiliy Lavrovsky reminded the participants that the majority of Indian products exported to the Russian market belonged to a higher-risk group due to spread of dangerous animal diseases and quarantine plant pests in India. Eliminating of those risks incurs additional expenses to the Rosselkhoznadzor, notably, for monitoring and control. Thus, it is the Indian party that should launch the initiative to enhance the access to the market. In order to prop up the transparency of the decisions taken the Parties agreed to promote cooperation of research institutes in the veterinary and phytosanitary field and reaffirmed their intentions to fulfill obligations under the Protocol of the 23rd Russian-Indian Intergovernmental Commission.

At the conclusion of the consultations, the Parties reiterated their interest in developing an Action Strategy for Trade and Economic Cooperation which, inter alia, provided for cooperation in agriculture and agreed to continue working in the course of the Eastern Economic Forum.
