Russia, EU to inspect Polish meat factories on Nov. 14-15

Russia’s agricultural regulator said it would conduct inspections of Polish meat producers who want to resume exports to Russia on November 14-15, jointly with EU experts.

The regulator, Rosselkhoznadzor, said an agreement on the checks was reached during three-way talks in Moscow earlier today. The list of enterprises to be inspected will be compiled and coordinated next week, when the Russian delegation arrives in Warsaw. The regulator said over 60 Polish companies have said they want to resume meat exports to Russia, which were halted by Moscow’s embargo, imposed two years ago. The ban followed accusations that Poland was supplying poor-quality meat from third countries. In retaliation, Poland vetoed talks on a new Russia-EU partnership and cooperation agreement in November 2006, demanding that meat deliveries should be resumed first.

Center-right politician Donald Tusk’s victory in Polish parliamentary elections last month prompted hopes that Warsaw would take a more accommodating stance on disputes with Russia. The prime minister-in-waiting is set to form a government this week. (rian.ru)
