Egypt canceled the ban on the import of wheat with an ergot fungus, which operated since late August, reports Reuters.
The ban restricted Egypt in purchases, effectively closing the international market for the state procurement company GASC, three tenders which after the introduction of the limit ended in vain.
Among other supplies Cairo refused to import 60.000 tons of Russian wheat from the port of Novorossiysk. In response to the rejection of its grain, the Russian Federation promised to introduce a temporary ban on the supply of fruits and vegetables from Egypt from 22 September.
Egypt is the largest exporter of wheat in the world and the largest buyer of this type of grain in Russia.
