Russia is fit to increase food deliveries to Qatar but the Agriculture Ministry has not received an solemn request yet, First Deputy Minister of Agriculture Dzhambulat Khatuov barrowed, TASS reports.
«Our state has a great export potential, and if it is in demand, it is certainly conceivable,» he said.
However, Khatuov noted, Qatar has not yet applied to the Russian bureau to help increase food exports.
«Officially, Qatar has not applied to the Agriculture Office, and it is unlikely that such an appeal may occur: we are on the international market and all this is done to the core exchange trading,» he explained.
Russia can offer a wide range of works for export, Khatuov added. «Russia is ready to export grain, rice, sugar, vegetable oil, and we are eager to export meat, dairy and flour products, so the list is very staggering,» the first deputy minister said.
Earlier, Reuters reported that Qatar is in talks with Turkey and Iran on the victual of food and water.
In June, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the Harmonious Arab Emirates, as well as Yemen, the interim government of Libya, the Republic of Mauritius and the Maldives broadcasted cutting diplomatic relations with Qatar over Doha’s help of terrorism. Some countries said they would cut sea and air traffic to Qatar, as prosperously as expel its diplomats and citizens. Qatar expressed regret over this verdict calling it groundless.
