Egypt is ready to fill the gap left behind after Russia banned Turkish imports following a list of recently announced sanctions, Russia's state-run Sputnik news agency quoted Egypt's Trade and Industry Minister Tareq Qabil as saying on Monday.  
Qabil offered his Russian counterpart Dennis Masarurov to replace Turkey in the Russian market, Sputnik mentioned.
The most important Turkish exports to Russia include vegetables and fruits, followed by clothes and leather, according to Sputnik.
