EU bans bird imports from Asia

A ban on the export of poultry products and pet birds from Cambodia to European Union member nations has been extended until September 30.

The restrictions, originally imposed until March 31 by the European Union's Standing Committee of the Food Chain and Animal Health, will now continue to affect eight Asian nations for most of 2005.

The European Commission has said that the ban on Cambodian products will remain in force until they can be certified as disease free.

The Committee has proposed to lift restrictions on South Korea and Japan.
