MOSCOW, August 5 (RIA Novosti) – Brazil intends to export dairy products to Russia and import Russian fish and grain, Russia's agriculture watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor said Tuesday.
“In order to ensure such imports, the sides will sign bilateral agreements regulating the deliveries,” the Russian watchdog said.
Talks between the Brazilian Agriculture Ministry and the Russian side are being held these days. The Brazilian delegation said ready to send a team of specialists to inspect Russian companies interested in the fish deliveries to Brazil.
The sides also discussed further cooperation between Russia and Brazil in the framework of international organizations and agreements.
Last month, Russian President Vladimir Putin met with his Brazilian counterpart Dilma Rousseff and expressed hope that the trade between the two countries will be boosted. The sides signed a large number of inter-agency and commercial agreements aimed at spurring up the development of Russian-Brazilian ties in various areas.
