RIYADH: Saudi Arabia has lifted a ban on livestock imports from Sudan, the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture announced on Thursday.
The decision was taken after a reappraisal of the epidemiological situation of livestock in Sudan verified that farmed animals in the country were disease-free, the ministry said in an official statement.
It added that a meeting was held with the Sudanese government to approve the latest conditions for all livestock exports from Sudan to the Kingdom. Sudanese livestock imports had been banned since a ministry ruling in October 2019.
