In the course of the talks the Parties touched upon exports of soya beans from Paraguay to Russia. Today Paraguay is a significant exporter of the product to Russia. In this context, they underscored the need of a rigorous quality control of exported soybeans. In particular, it is necessary to pay special attention to control of glyphosate in the given product. Specialists of the competent authorities will soon discuss the requirements of the Customs Union Technical Regulation on “Grain Safety” setting up standards for glyphosate in soybeans. Complying with those standards will allow continuous exports of the product.
The talks also spotlighted the epidemiological situation in the world.
In the conclusion the Parties noted a trust-based nature of relations between Russia and Paraguay and agreed to continue building-up the cooperation between the two states.
