Turkey buy EU, Black Sea wheat to replace Russian imports

Dünya Executive - - OVERVIEW -

Turkish flour mills covered short-term needs by purchasing several hundred thousand tons of wheat from European Union and Black Sea countries, replacing Russian supplies which are subject to a change in import rules, millers and traders said on April 5. Turkey has effectivel­y halted purchases from Russia of wheat , corn and sunflower seeds by removing Russian items from a duty-free import scheme on March 15, although Ankara denies banning imports from Russia.

The move means Russian supplies face a prohibitiv­e 130 percent duty, and Moscow has said the tariffs are hindering relations.
