According to the Times of India, Turkey had purchased 56,877 tonnes of wheat from India, and the ship carrying the wheat had arrived at the Turkish coast, but the country's authorities refused to unload the Indian wheat.
The report states that Turkish officials are concerned about the presence of the rubella virus in Indian wheat.
During the Corona epidemic, Turkish Agriculture and Health Department officials justified the presence of the virus in wheat and returned the entire crop to India, claiming they could not take any more risks.
