Kazakhstan doesn't allow exports of diary products from Kyrgyzstan to its southern regions.
Kazakhstan has not allowed exports of diary products from
Kyrgyzstan to its southern regions, where foot-and-mouth disease cases
were registered, State Veterinary Department Chief Janybek Sultanov told
Tazabek on Friday. This information came from the meeting of the
delegation of Kyrgyzstan with Chief of the Veterinary Control and
Supervision Department of Kazakhstan Nigmat Jakupbaev in Astana.
Kyrgyzstan has asked Kazakhstan to allow exports of processed milk
products to the southern parts of Kazakhstan, but Kazakhstan did not
give permission referring to the requirements of the Customs Union and
the International Office of Epizootics. The code of the International
Office of Epizootics requires for the epizootic situation to remain
favorable within 6 months after normalization. "Kyrgyzstan is
member of the International Office of Epizootics and should comply with
its requirements," Sultanov said. The foot-and-mouth disease was
registered in southern regions of Kazakhstan in September. "The
last quarantine was lifted in Kyrgyzstan a week ago," Sultanov
said. When asked what arrangements are made to lift a ban, Sultanov said
acting Prime Minister Omurbek Babanov promised to discuss this issue
with Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Karim Masimov.
