Rouhani asks Putin to remove trade hurdles

Rouhani asks Putin to remove trade hurdles

Head of Iran’s Chamber of Commerce says President Hassan Rouhani has asked for President Vladimir Putin's intervention to facilitate exports of Iranian food to Russia.


Russia’s leaders have cited Iran as a possible new source of supply after banning imports from Turkey but Mohsen Jalalpour said Iranian exporters face hurdles to access the Russian market.

The Tasnim news agency quoted Jalalpour as saying “After a decade of trade relations, our food still faces limitations for entry into Russia”.

“At the request of Agriculture Minister, Mahmoud Hojjati, from the President, Rouhani has had a talk with Putin about promoting and facilitating Iranian food exports to Russia and reviewing imports of Iranian agricultural goods.”

Jalalpour cited tough import regulations and tariffs which Russia has in place for imports from Iran.
