US, Russia may be close to deal on poultry trade

Gennady Onishchenko says some trade rules have been agreed upon

Russia may be close to having a plan in place to resume U.S. poultry trade, which has been suspended since January, said The Wall Street Journal.

According to Russian newswires, Rospotrebnadzor Chief Gennady Onishchenko said his agency has come to an agreement on various rules for trading poultry between Russia and the U.S. Rospotrebnadzor is Russia's consumer protection agency.

The ban on Russian imports of U.S. poultry took effect January 19, which Russia attributed to a common chlorine wash used in the U.S.
