German pork exports to China temporarily suspended

German pork exports to China and some other countries outside the European Union were temporarily suspended after a case of African swine fever (ASF) in a wild boar was confirmed, the German Ministry of Agriculture said today.
"Most of the veterinary certificates that have been agreed for the export of pork from Germany contain the statement that Germany is free from African swine fever," said a spokesman for the ministry.
"This statement since yesterday can no longer be made on the certificates."
Exports to EU countries remain possible due to a clause in which import bans only apply to those from the region in which the ASF case was discovered.
"The federal government is currently holding talks with the respective countries with the aim of revising the certificates with a regionalization clause," said the spokesman. "In the meantime, exports will be temporarily suspended."
"We are holding intensive talks with China and other non-EU countries in order to reach a regionalization clause."
