A source in the government told PRIME that Medvedev plans to discuss permission to restart Turkish products supplies at a meeting with the government’s commission for agricultural issues.

Medvedev said: “We have made no decision, we will discuss these things with the Turkish partners but it does not mean that we will run and open traight away.”

Earlier in July, President Vladimir Putin signed a ruling to abolish a prohibition to sell tours to Turkey and to carry charter flights, after receiving Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s letter with condolences to the family of a jet pilot shot down last year. The rest of the restrictions remain in force.
