The head of the agency said that there was no objection from "Rosselkhoznadzor" to Uzbekistan regarding this issue.
"The process of exchanging information on the situation with Rosselkhoznadzor is underway. We can provide accurate information after they send us their studies," said Sabina Sadinova.
He added that it is not a virus detected in cherries, but an insect, as reported in the networks.
