MINSK, 21 May (BelTA) – Belarus has no major issues when it comes to the sales of agricultural products on the domestic and foreign markets, Belarus' Premier Sergei Rumas told reporters following a meeting with President Aleksandr Lukashenko to discuss burning economic issues on 21 May, BelTA has learned.

“Unfortunately, some companies are not allowed to ship their products to the Russian Federation. However, if we look at this issue from the other side, we will see that the warehouse stock of major groups of food products stands at 20-25%,” Sergei Rumas said.

In other words, all agricultural products made in Belarus are sold on the domestic or foreign markets. “We will keep working to allow all our companies to supply their products to the Russian Federation. However, as far as the trade in these products is concerned, we have no major issues here. The warehouse stock of many product types is close to zero today, all the products are sold,” he noted.

The head of government emphasized that Belarus discusses barriers in trade with Russia not only during bilateral talks, but also in the Eurasian Economic Union. In late April Yerevan hosted a session of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council where Belarus managed to defend its position on this matter and Russia removed sectoral restrictions on product supplies.

“We agreed that no country is allowed to close its market for products from the other state. If some issues arise with some company, the corresponding services should deal with it. However, no country has the right to close an entire economic sector, an entire industry,” Sergei Rumas concluded.
