Dubai -The UAE has lifted a ban on importing live cows from some European countries including Iceland, Norway, Croatia, Cyprus, Latvia, Estonia, Malta and Hungary.

The decision came in the light of the environment and water ministry's keenness to achieve food security and protect the community and livestock from diseases.

Minister of Environment and Water Rashid Ahmed bin Fahad issued a statement that stipulated the need to take into account the epidemiological situation of the exporting countries where animals were earlier affected by infectious diseases.

The decision also took into account other conditions like raising and slaughtering of livestock in accordance with the laws of veterinary quarantine in the UAE.
