''We restricted the import of live animals from China to Georgia, as the food is not risky,'' Georgian Minister of Environment Protection and Agriculture Levan Davitashvili said.
According to him, Georgia is a member of many international organizations, and the Agricultural Ministry cooperates with several organizations being responsible for the accomplishment of international conventions, including the evaluation of risks.
''We follow the recommendations issued by international organizations including the World Health Organization, International Organization of Food and Agriculture. We have restricted the import of live animals to Georgia. As for the food, it is not risky,'' he said.
In Davitashvili's words, Georgia will act under the recommendations of international organizations.
Georgia banned the import of live animals from China due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
