ROME (Sputnik) — Russia is set for lifting reciprocal restrictions with the European Union, but European partners are not yet showing goodwill in that issue, Russian Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev said Tuesday at a meeting with Italian business circles.

"As regards vehicles, clothes and furniture, there are no restrictions on imports here. Restrictions only apply to imports of agricultural products and agricultural supplies," Ulyukayev said.

"But this is not our choice. The best proposal would be to reciprocally lift all those restrictions. We would welcome it, but unfortunately our partners, including European partners, do not show the required goodwill here," he said.
