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.
