SOCHI, Russia, May 3 (Reuters) - Russia will resume grain exports to Turkey within the next few days after resolving issues with Ankara that had been restricting supplies, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said on Wednesday.

Dvorkovich, speaking after President Vladimir Putin held talks with his Turkish counterpart Tayyip Erdogan in the Russian resort of Sochi, also said that some Russian restrictions on tomato imports from Turkey would remain in place "in some form" for the next three to five years.

Turkey, traditionally the second largest buyer of Russian wheat after Egypt and the top buyer of its sunflower oil, imposed what Moscow regarded as prohibitively high import tariffs in March. (Reporting by Denis Pinchuk; Writing by Vladimir Soldatkin; Editing by Andrew Osborn)
