RUSSIA EXTENDS POULTRY BAN

April 11, 2001

REUTERS reports that Russia extended a ban on the imports of U.S. poultry for two more days beyond Wednesday's deadline, saying it needed more time to study evidence which Washington said proved its turkey and chicken are safe.

""Without analyzing how the United States meets our demands, it is impossible to lift the restrictions on U.S. poultry imports,"" Agriculture Minister Alexei Gordeyev told reporters late on Wednesday. Russia was by far the largest importer of American poultry before it slapped a ban on the trade last month. The dispute has threatened to cloud President George W. Bush's visit in May.
