Kazakhstan hasn’t lifted ban on meat imports from Kyrgyzstan since 2006
Kazakhstan has not lifted the ban on meat imports from Kyrgyzstan imposed since 2006, Chief of Agriculture Ministry's Cattle Breeding and Veterinary Department Samat Aliev told Tazabek.
Meat products of Kyrgyzstan do not meet requirements of Kazakhstan over poor situation with cattle diseases, CA-News reported.
Prefabricated meat products and diary products can be exported to Kazakhstan from Kyrgyzstan, he said.
The veterinary services of Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan at the meeting on August 17, 2010, in Kordai produced the action plan for opening the market of Kazakhstan for meat from Kyrgyzstan. The ban was not lifted over unfavorable situation with cattle diseases in Kyrgyzstan, Aliev explained.
"Russia, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan are closed for our markets. They did not lift the ban on meat imports. They only allow to export processed products," he stressed.
