Russia has strengthened control over food and agriculture imports from Turkey, the agriculture ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

[MOSCOW] Russia has strengthened control over food and agriculture imports from Turkey, the agriculture ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

The Russian government has told the food safety watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor to strengthen controls after the agriculture ministry's research showed that about 15 per cent of agriculture imports from Turkey did not meet Russian regulations, it added.

Turkey supplies mainly vegetables, fruits and meat products to Russia.
