No poultry or eggs imports from Turkey

Baghdad/ Iraq TradeLink: The Iraqi government reiterated its stand not to import poultry or egs due to abundant production in the country.

Turkey was informed of this decision during a meeting between Iraqi agriculture minister Saleh al-Hasani with the Turkish ambassador to Baghdad Fatih Yeldi, according to a statement made by the ministry today.

Turkish media sources reported that the Turkish poultry and eggs sectors neared to bankruptcy due to stoppage of Iraqi imports.

Turkey used to export 85% of its eggs production to Iraq, according to media reports.
