Importation of Chinese Meat to Armenia Prohibited

Grisha Baghiyan, who heads the State Food Safety and Veterinary Inspectorate with the Armenian Ministry of Agriculture, has told Hetq that the importation of meat from two provinces in China has been prohibited.

The likely cause is the outbreak of “O” type foot and mouth disease in pig herds last March in the southern province of Guangdong.
