MINSK, 21 September (BelTA) - Belarus is planning to vaccinate animals in the buffer zone on the border with Poland. The two countries are set to conclude a relevant agreement. This issue was discussed during a meeting of the Belarusian-Polish working group on cooperation in agriculture in Minsk on 21 September, BelTA has learned.

“In line with this agreement we will use aviation to vaccinate wild carnivorous animals in the buffer zone on the Belarusian-Polish border. It is an approximately 30km zone. The European Union will compensate us, through Poland, for the costs we incurred,” Belarus' Deputy Agriculture and Food Minister Ivan Smilgin said. Belarus reached such agreements with Lithuania and Latvia a few years ago.

The document may be signed during a visit of Chairman of the Council of the Republic Mikhail Myasnikovich to Warsaw in October, informed Szymon Giżyński, Secretary of State of the Polish Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Ivan Smilgin stated that the country is ready to start vaccinating animals on the border in the near future.

Representatives of the ministries discussed the state and prospects of trade cooperation, interaction in veterinary, livestock, crop and phytosanitary issues, participation in agricultural exhibitions organized by the countries.

The parties also discussed Polish beef export. Belarus confirmed its readiness to import the product. The relevant barriers were removed last year. “There are no bans on the supply of beef, cattle stock to Belarus. We only need an interest from business, our breeding farms,” said the representative of the Belarusian ministry.
