BRUSSELS, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. EU Health Commissioner Tonio Borg will soon contact Russia’s veterinary authorities to discuss the situation with African swine fever that has been detected in Lithuania, EU Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development Dacian Ciolos said on Thursday.
“We will see what measures can be taken,” Ciolos told journalists in his comments on reports that Russia would suspend pork imports from the European Union over the outbreak of African swine fever in Lithuania.
The European Commission would try to persuade the Russian side that the EU had taken necessary measures to prevent the spread of highly contagious hemorrhagic disease of pigs and thus, exports would pose no threat for consumers in Russia.
