KUWAIT CITY: The Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR) has banned imports of poultry from Djibouti, Mali and Romania due to outbreak of bird flu in these countries.

The authority said in a press release, Sunday, that it had lifted ban on imports of all live birds, incubating eggs, chicks and chicken from Lithuania and Ireland following reports that they had become clear of any bird flu cases.

It affirmed that all such imports must be subject to the terms set by the Animal Health Department and regulations of the World Organization for Animal Health, in addition to those set by veterinary quarantines’ regulations applied in Kuwait and other GCC countries.

It has further warned that any imported livestock, infected with epidemics, would be rejected and the importer will bear costs of sending the sick animals back to the origin of importation.
