Sands: the embargo against goods from Turkey not entered

MOSCOW, November 26. The embargo against goods from Turkey is not entered, the possibility of its introduction in the Kremlin is not yet being discussed, said the President’s press Secretary Dmitry Peskov.

“No embargo, of course, is not entered. However, with increasing danger of various extremist manifestations, of course, additional measures of control. This is quite natural, especially given the unpredictability of the actions of the Turkish Republic,” he said.

Answering the question, discussed previously in the Kremlin the possibility of imposing embargoes on goods from Turkey, Peskov said: “can’t answer this question. I don’t know that this was discussed”.

However, Peskov stressed that the strengthening of control for agricultural products from Turkey comes out and with a possible terrorist threat.
“It is associated with a wide range of different factors. The role of the terrorist threat, of course, cannot be excluded,” he said.

“Of course, to fix such a devastating loss that was dealt to bilateral relations (Russia and Turkey) it is very difficult, very difficult,” he said.
