    Bashkortostan (a Russian republic in the south Urals) is to supply the United States with 15 metric tons of honey, Bashkir Trade Minister Boris Kolbin said Tuesday.

    This will be the first trial export of Bashkir honey to the U.S. "If the U.S. shows an interest, our republic is prepared to supply honey in large volumes," said Kolbin.

    Bashkir honey is considered to be high-quality and is sold in Europe as a luxury product in some expensive restaurants, Kolbin said.
