UAE bans bird imports from Australia.

Dubai, Nov. 1 (BNA)-- The UAE has slapped a temporary ban on importation of all kinds of tamed, wild and ornamental living birds, their products and offal from Australia due to the appearance of infectious cases of bird flu. The decision was issued by Minister of Environment and Water Dr. Rashid Ahmad Bin Fahad following reports received from the International Organisation of Animal Health (OIE) on the appearance of infected cases of highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (H7N2).

The decision exempts heat-treated birds as per ministerial resolution No (9 of 2012) regarding conditions for importing red meat and heat-treated chicken meat.

The ban was imposed as part of the ministry's strategic objectives to keep people and animals in the country safe from epidemic diseases.
