RIGA, August 9 (Itar-Tass) - Latvia’s Foreign Ministry warns that meat, meat products, milk and dairy products are prohibited to import while entering the EU territory due to the outbreak of African swine fever.
“The Foreign Ministry warns tourists against importing pork from Russia. It can contain pathogens, which provoke infectious diseases, and travellers can bring infectious organisms in the territory of the EU,” the press service reported.
To this end, baggage will be checked thoroughly on the Latvian-Russia and the Latvian-Belarusian borders. If banned products are found, they will be confiscated and eliminated. A person, who will bring banned products, can pay a fine or bring to trial.
At the end of July Latvia took a decision to erect barriers on the border. Lithuania also seeks to erect barriers on its border. Another measure is aimed at creating a many-kilometre buffer zone.
African swine plague was registered in South Africa in 1903.
