What Commissioners said

Tonio Borg: "I call once more on the Russian Federation to engage in constructive talks on the issue in view of finding a satisfactory resolution"

"On the 24 January, African Swine Fever (ASF) was detected in two wild boars in southern Lithuania, an area that borders with Belarus. Immediate action was taken to prevent the further spread of the disease from the infected areas in Lithuania. Latest scientific evidence shows that these two Lithuanian cases of ASF are linked to the unsuccessful attempts to control the prolonged presence of ASF in the western regions of Russia and the recent introduction of the disease in Belarus. No information or evidence has been provided by the Russians about measures taken to contain any risk of further spread of the disease into the EU. Russia has imposed unprecedented trade restrictions on the export of pigs and pig meat from all 28 EU Member States, even though the occurrence of the disease is restricted to only a limited area of Lithuania. These restrictions, apart from having a serious economic impact on European business operators, are also disproportionate and contrary to international trade principles." EU Health Commissioner, Tonio Borg said.
