Russia will temporarily ban imports of live pigs from Germany over antibiotic levels in the animals, the head of the country's agriculture watchdog said Wednesday.

"Starting from November 15, we are limiting deliveries of live pigs from Germany because there are no safety guarantees," head of the veterinary service Rosselkhoznadzor Sergei Dankvert was quoted as saying by Interfax news agency.

He added that live pig imports will be stopped until Germany's veterinary service provides guarantees regarding their antibiotic content. "We need guarantees from Germany's veterinary service and as long as we don't have them, deliveries of live pigs from this country will be stopped."
