MOSCOW, 9 June (BelTA) – Belarus is maintaining fruitful cooperation with the Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor); all disagreements are a thing of the past, Belarusian Deputy Agriculture and Food Minister Aleksei Bogdanov told BelTA on the sidelines of the Belarus-Asia Forum held at the Belarusian Embassy in Moscow on 9 June, BelTA has learned.

“By and large, we do not have any problems with Rosselkhoznadzor; there are certain things we are dealing with in a routine manner, and we keep in touch every day,” Aleksei Bogdanov said answering a question whether disagreements with the Russian watchdog are over.

“We do not experience any problems while working with our partners. We have made a name for ourselves in this market [the Russian market]; ‘Made in Belarus' products are in high demand among Russian consumers,” the deputy minister stressed.

Aleksei Bogdanov added that in January-April this year, the export of Belarusian foodstuffs to Russia increased by 4.9% year-on-year to reach $1.4 billion. In the same period food imports from Russia increased by 8.1% and amounted to $495 million.
