The same situation has evolved around signing of four veterinary certificates accompanied by which food gelatin, cattle seed and embryos as well as live horses would be exported from Argentina to the EAEU. All documents are under consideration of the Union member states.
In respect of the draft certificate necessary for imports of breeding cattle from Argentina, the Rosselkhoznadzor stated that it had prepared its remarks and sent a respective letter to the Embassy of the Republic of Argentina during the meeting.
