The Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Kazakhstan considers the restrictions imposed by Kyrgyzstan on the import of poultry meat and eggs from Almaty and North Kazakhstan regions as illegal.
Kyrgyzstan imposed the restriction to clarify the true epizootic situation on highly pathogenic avian influenza and Newcastle disease. Import of live birds, hatching eggs, zoo and circus animals from Almaty and North Kazakhstan regions was forbidden. The ban also applies to poultry meat, egg powder, egg mixture, albumin and other food products of egg processing. In addition, import of feed and additives for birds is also banned.
