Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 5
By Ilhama Isabalayeva – Trend:
Azerbaijan doesn’t import poultry meat and its products from the Kostroma region of Russia, where bird flu was detected, so there is no need to impose a ban on the imports of these products, Yolchu Khanvali, head of the press service of the State Veterinary Control Service under the Agriculture Ministry of Azerbaijan, told Trend Jan. 5.
He added that Azerbaijan imports poultry meat and its products from Turkey, Brazil and Ukraine, and eggs from Ukraine and Turkey.
Azerbaijan imposed a temporary ban on the import of poultry meat and its products after bird flu was detected in March-April last year in Moscow and the surrounding areas.
On Jan. 5, 2018, Belarus imposed a ban on the import of poultry meat from the Kostroma region of Russia in connection with the bird flu detected there.
