Plans for a deal under which Russia and Kazakhstan are to supply wheat to Iran have stalled as "no progress" has been made in its financing, the secretary-general of the Iran Federation of Food Industry Associations said.Under the deal, Russia would supply around 100,000 tons of wheat per month to Iranian private millers, who are not allowed to use domestic wheat for flour exports.Iran's private millers requested 180,000 tons of wheat for supply from Russia and Kazakhstan in 2018 but only 80,000 tons have been supplied so far, he added.Iran has enough wheat harvested inside the country to cover its needs until the next year, Zargaran said.
