On August 27, Deputy Prime Minister Mikhail Rusy met with Vitenis Andriukaitis, European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Safety.
During the meeting, the representative of the Belarusian government said that European inspectors visited five Belarusian poultry farms applying for certification and the right to supply chicken meat to the EU.
“We are open and ready to solve many issues, including those highlighted by the European Union, about the ASF [African swine fever. Note by Belsat.eu] and other areas, ” said Mikhail Rusy.
In April, Russian Minister of Agriculture Alexander Tkachev said that Belarus “was hiding” outbreaks of African swine fever in the country.
