Turkish goods are not exported from Azerbaijan to Russia, Aydin Aliyev, head of the Azerbaijani State Customs Committee, told reporters March 14.
"The Azerbaijani customs structures always require presenting a certificate of origin of the products during export," he said. "We are thoroughly conducting inspection in this direction."
"I can assure that Turkish goods are not exported from Azerbaijan to Russia," Aliyev said.
While speaking of the delay in transporting Azerbaijani goods through the Russian customs, Aliyev said that the Russian side is entitled to inspect imported products.
"This is their right, namely, the Russian customs structures and the Federal Service for Veterinarian and Vegetation Sanitary Supervision," he said. "They are fully entitled to inspect the products imported to the country."
