Russia is considering temporary limits on fruit imports from Serbia following the shipment of diseased fruit, the Sputnik portal reported.

It said that the Russian agriculture authorities informed the Serbian Agriculture Ministry that it was concerned over 12 shipments of diseased peaches, nectarines and plums in July.

A statement said that the Russian authorities said that it is keeping open the option of temporarily banning fruit imports from Serbia if more shipments of diseased fruit are found.

The Serbian ministry said it would investigate all the shipments of diseased fruit, adding that four have been banned from exporting to Russia.

The Russian authorities banned imports of some fruits from Serbia last year after finding some shipments of diseased fruit. The ban was lifted in May this year.
