Watan Al-Youm – In news issued by the Ministry of Agriculture and published by Watan Al-Youm, Minister of Agriculture Khaled Hanifat announced today, Friday, that there are Saudi promises to lift the ban on importing sheep from Jordan soon. Hanifat justified the Saudi decision as a sovereign decision related to Saudi Arabia. The Ministry of Agriculture said in a previous statement that the lifting of the ban comes after the World Organization for Animal Health announced on its website that the foot-and-mouth disease that affected cows had ended in a specific area. In another news issued by the Ministry of Agriculture and transmitted by the Kingdom on 14-5-2023, that is, about ten days before the news issued today, Friday, the Ministry of Agriculture announced that Saudi Arabia had lifted the temporary ban imposed since the beginning of this year on importing sheep from Jordan. The ministry said at the time, in a statement, that the lifting of the ban comes after the World Organization for Animal Health announced 60 days ago by announcing on its website that the case of foot-and-mouth disease that affected cows in a specific area had ended. There is a paradox in the first statement of the Ministry of Agriculture in which it announced the approval of the Saudi side, to return today, Friday, in another statement that talks about promises of approval. On May 14th, which was reported by the Kingdom, that the World Health Organization announced the end of the foot-and-mouth disease.
