China lifts bans on Russian poultry products


China has lifted a ban on import of poultry products from Russia, said the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) and the Ministry of Agriculture. “The decision was based on the risk assessment results,” the two ministries said in a joint statement, adding that ornamental birds and wild birds are still subject to the ban.

China banned Russian poultry products in 2005 due to avian influenza outbreaks. In June this year, Russia reported new AI among wild birds in Respublika Tyva.
