Georgia has no plans to impose ban on vegetable imports from EU
Georgia, Tbilisi, June 2 / Trend, N. Kirtskhalia /
Georgia has no plans to impose a ban on vegetable imports from the EU, the National Food Security Service told Trend on Thursday.
The service said that there is no need, as the virus that killed 16 people in Germany has not been recorded in Georgia.
"We have not also received notification from the EU emergency alert system," the service said.
Russia has already banned vegetable imports from Europe.
According to BBC, the reason for the ban is the recent spread of a gastrointestinal infection in Europe.
The disease has been found in Denmark, Germany, Holland, Sweden, Czech Republic, Switzerland and the UK.
