Russian President Vladimir Putin
expressed his confidence in the prospects of Latin American imports during his meeting with Argentine President Cristina Kirchner. Putin said that developing a relationship between the two countries would give Russians the “opportunity to eat a good lunch”.
“Thanks to the increase in supplies of agricultural products to Russia
from Argentina, these supplies are growing, volumes are growing; and just in the first six months of the year, 2.5 thousand tonnes of beef have been shipped to Russia
,” Putin said, as quoted by Interfax. Later he said that “in Russia
, we also have the opportunity to eat well, thanks tot Argentine products”.
Shipments to the Russian market have already increased among several food categories. The president attributed this result to trade turnover between the two countries during the first half of the year.
