Some experts believe that Russian grain producers are trying to export their products to Far Eastern countries.
Recently, these producers have consulted with Japanese officials to take over a part of the grain market in Southeast Asia after China.
In recent days, some diplomats have reported online talks between the two countries’ agricultural officials.
Imports of soybeans in Japan reached less than $ 82 million in September 2020, according to estimates by the Japanese Ministry of Commerce. Meanwhile, the import of this product during August last year was more than 118 million dollars.
It should be noted that Russian officials had previously reached an agreement with the Chinese on the export of their grain.
Russia has exported more than 950,000 tons of soybeans worth $ 290 million in 2018.
The country’s main export destinations in recent years have been China, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Iran, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Korea, and Belarus.
