Ignatiy Arakelyan: Armenia`s Agriculture Ministry cannot ban import  of agricultural products from Turkey if they are imported legally

ArmInfo. Armenia's Minister of  Agriculture admitted that the ministry is not eligible to ban import  of agricultural products to Armenia if they are imported legally, he  told journalists on December 1after the session of government.  Arakelyan stated that if import is conducted illegally relative  agencies will deal with the issue. 

Earlier Agriculture Ministry has made a statement according to which  until quite recently, Turkish-grown tomatoes and cucumbers were sold  on the Armenian domestic market. The press office of the Armenian  Ministry of Agriculture reports that the import of Turkish food  products has been stopped; so has the trade with Turkish products on  the Malatia farm market in Yerevan. At the same time, however, there  are still some boxes of Turkish-grown tomatoes and cucumbers at  storage houses and they regularly appear on the market. Minister  Arakelyan, in turn, noted that after the receiving the alarm the  relevant structures immediately took the necessary measures, however,  not only the state structures but also NGOs should take active part  in this process to settle the problem cardinally. Chairman of the  Armenian State Food Safety Service Ishkhan Karapetyan suggested  setting up an initiative civic service consisting of representatives  of the Association of Greenhouse Facilities and submitting a written  application to the State Revenue Committee to inspect the activities  of the entity that imported the Turkish products. "It is also  necessary to consider the problem from the economic point of view,  paying serious attention to enhancement of competitiveness of the  local products so that they could be at advantage as compared to the  imported ones," the minister said, also stressing the need to  diversify the range of products.    Ishkhan Karapetyan called on the  heads of greenhouse facilities to ensure the necessary volumes of  high- quality and affordable agricultural products on the threshold  of New Year holidays to rule out the need to import the products from  Turkey.
