    Russian Agriculture Minister Alexander Tkachev stated that Moscow is not planning to lift restrictions on Turkish food imports in the near future.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Moscow is not planning to lift restrictions on Turkish food imports in the near future, Russian Agriculture Minister Alexander Tkachev said on Thursday.

    "We are not planning to do it in the near future," Tkachev told journalists.

    Moscow accused Ankara of aiding terrorism and imposed embargo on Turkish food export after Turkey shot down a Russian Su-24 combat plane on an anti-terror mission in Syria under pretext that it violated Turkish airspace in November 2015.
