Russia does not want to cancel the food embargo if the European Union will not abandon punishment, said Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich.
"As for the abolition total or partial embargo, it is, of course, no movement on sanctions that can't be right. Anyway, We continuously do analysis of the situation, And the list has been corrected. For this reason, nothing is out of, but large-scale solutions, by itself, without the abolition of punishment from our European partners will not be ", - has declared Dvorkovich after negotiations in Athens, reports RIA " Novosti ". Along with this, According to Dvorkovich, there are additional opportunities for the promotion of Greek products which do not fall under the embargo." Our Greek colleagues agreed That not enough work in this area. We came to a consensus That will help them with recommendations, contacts directly with the regions, networks. As for the items that are under embargo, we can only create shared processing facilities And to supply processed products that are not subject to punishment", - has declared Dvorkovich.
