Iraq has lifted a ban on the import of livestock from Iran following the containment of foot-and-mouth disease. As Mehr News Agency reported, the Iraqi Agriculture Ministry’s Veterinary Directorate lifted the ban following a report issued by World Organization for Animal Health on May 28 indicating that the disease had been contained. FMD is an infectious and at times fatal viral disease that affects cloven-hoofed animals, including cattle.
