    No decisions on a possible Turkey food imports resumption have been made yet Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — No decisions have been made yet on a possible resumption of food imports from Turkey, and such a decision would not mean an immediate launch of deliveries, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Tuesday.

    "No decisions have been made, we will hold discussions with Turkish partners, but this doesn't mean that we're immediately going to open everything. Only one decision has been made, in regard to tourist routes," Medvedev said.

    Previously, Erdogan sent a letter to Putin apologizing for the November 2015 Turkish downing of a Russian Su-24 in Syria. Following the incident, Moscow imposed a number of restrictive measures on Ankara, including a food ban as well as travel bans that impacted the Turkish tourism industry.
