UAE bans bird imports from Germany's state of Brandenburg

posted on 26/12/2007: 2002 views


The United Arab Emirates banned on Tuesday imports of all kinds of birds from German State of Brandenburg after cases of bird flu were detected there. Issued by Minister of Environment and Water Dr Mohammed Saeed Al Kindi, the ban covered "all living domestic and wild birds and their products'. The minister instructed the animal wealth department in his ministry to coordinate efforts with other relevant authorities to put the ban in place. The resolution said the ban was slapped as a precautionary measure to protect health safety of the public and animal resources alike. The ban was imposed according to reports received by the ministry from the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) about appearance of bird flu in the German State. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
