Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance and Moroccan Veterinary Service Discussed Possibility of Supplying Russian Beef and Casings
The negotiations between the Rosselkhoznadzor and the Moroccan Veterinary Service were held within the 87th General Session of the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) on May 28 in Paris.
In the framework of this meeting a veterinary certificate for export of beef from Russia to Morocco was discussed. The Russian side notified Moroccan colleagues that on May 20, 2019, Russia recovered the status of a country with a FMD-free zone without vaccination. The Veterinary Service of Morocco extended congratulations on the recovery and noted that the process of approving this certificate had earlier been delayed due to absence of this status.
The Russian side also handed to the Moroccan colleagues an updated veterinary certificate for export of beef from Russia to Morocco to be reviewed in the near future as the foreign colleagues promised.
The possibility of exporting casings from Russia to Morocco was discussed among other things. The Moroccan side has assured that it will speed up the process of providing answers concerning the above mentioned issues.
