Kazakhstan extends ban of wheat import via road
The ban on the import of wheat by road into Kazakhstan has been extended from October 11 for a period of six months, Azernews reported, citing Trend.
As noted by the country's Ministry of Agriculture, this step was taken to eliminate illegal imports of wheat.
From September 26, a ban was introduced for a period of six months on the import of wheat by rail (except for the import of grain intended for licensed elevators, as well as grain processing and poultry enterprises).
The restrictions imposed on imports by rail do not apply to transit transportation through the territory of Kazakhstan.
