The third meeting “Cross Border Trade and TADs Risk Reduction between China, Mongolia and Russia (TCP/RAS/3306 B04)” started its work in FGBI “Federal Centre for Animal Health” (Vladimir). In particular the meeting under aegis of FAO (Food and Agriculture Agency of the UN) envisages participation of three countries (Russia, Mongolia, China) in provision of coordination measures for FMD prevention in Mongolia.

During the meeting Mr. Tsedenkhuu, representative of Mongolia, informed that today the western part of Mongolia is completely free of FMD, the central part is considered to be free and is being monitored and the eastern part is also considered to be free with vaccination.

Besides, Russia and China are interested in taking joint measures regarding this issue because there is a high probability of FMD transmission by wild animals in the territories boarding Mongolia. Taking into account dense animal population this can substantially increase risk of outbreaks. Thus, the population in China is 1.1 billion of pigs, 150 million of cattle and 650 million of small ruminants. 2.82 billion FMD vaccine doses are produced and used for FMD control at the budget expense every year. In this connection issues related to joint monitoring in wild fauna were discussed at the meeting.

During the meeting will be discussed issues related to risks of other transboundery diseases such as highly pathogenic avian influenza, African swine fever.
