Turkey to impose commercial embargo on Russia

Turkey will ban the import of some Russian-made products. Ankara intends to take this step in response to Russia imposing an embargo on Turkish goods.

Moscow banned the importation of Turkish goods not only from Turkey, but also from Europe last week. Kursat Tuzmen, the Minister of State in charge of Customs and Foreign Trade, while visiting China, underlined that Russia’s embargo on Turkish goods will cause damage to both sides. “This is illegal. They impede the importation of Turkish products to their country. Therefore Turkish exporters, Russian importers and world brands suffer. We will give an adequate answer to Russia. Import of Russian-made products will be banned as from today,” he said.
