    Iranian fish will soon hit stores across Russia, as the Islamic Republic has begun exporting fish to Russia. The delivery of dairy and livestock products is expected to follow within the next 10 days.

    MOSCOW, January 12 (Sputnik) — Iran has begun exporting fish to Russia, the head of the Iran-Russia Chamber of Commerce, Asadollah Asgaroladi, told journalists Friday.

    He also said that a protocol on the delivery of dairy and livestock products will be signed in the next 10 days.

    The protocol for fish deliveries to Russia came into force last week, with Iran already exporting shrimp and caviar to Russia.

    Asgaroladi said that the Iranian Central Bank has asked Russia to create favorable conditions for establishing a joint Russian-Iranian bank as soon as possible.

    He also said the negotiations between the two countries concerning the opening of a maritime route from the Iranian port of Anzali to the Russian port of Astrakhan were underway.

    In December, Moscow and Tehran agreed on the need to use their national currencies in bilateral food trade. Russian state agricultural watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor also noted the potential benefits of diversifying and increasing the volume of food traded with Iran.
