Since August 2, Japan has lifted the ban on export of poultry meat and eggs from Ukraine, which was introduced in December last year in connection with the spread of pathogenic bird flu in Ukraine.

UA informs this citing the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The corresponding decision was made by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan following the results of negotiations with diplomats of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and the State Food Service.

The Ukrainian side informed Japanese partners in detail about measures to combat outbreaks of the disease.

“We are not only creating new export opportunities for Ukrainian companies, but also restoring access to foreign markets that were closed. Such closure decisions are usually made quickly, and it takes an effort to convince partners to reopen the market. I am glad that we managed to convince Japanese partners of the safety of Ukrainian products, and from now on Ukrainian companies can export their products again” – Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.

Earlier, Ukraine and Turkey agreed on a certificate for the export of dairy products.
