Russia will remove import tariffs on Iran’s dairy products as of January 15, said the head of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture. Mohsen Jalalpour added that the facility will be extended to a set of other products as well in mid-February, IRNA reported. His comments follow Russia’s Economy Minister Alexei Ulyukayev’s earlier announcement that Kremlin may cut or cancel import duties on imports from Iran. “We offer serious steps aimed at improving trade conditions for the Iranians, meaning a cut, and even cancellation of customs tariff, mainly for agricultural goods—vegetables and fruits,” he said. Trade turnover between the two countries fell 23.6% in January-October to just over $1 billion.
