Russia could temporarily ban some agricultural imports from Egypt



Russia's food safety watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor said on Tuesday it could impose a temporary ban on imports of "products of high phytosanitary risk" from Egypt.

It did not disclose the list of the products which could be banned but said that its concern was caused by "systematic breach of international and phytosanitary requirements" by Cairo ahead of the start of massive citrus fruit supplies to Russia.
