SANAA, Dec. 31 (YPA) – Ministry of Industry and Trade on Tuesday issued a decision prohibiting the import of beef, lamb, goat, chicken, and their chilled and frozen products from other than the country of origin.

The decision stipulated that the import of these frozen and chilled meat and products to the Republic of Yemen should be limited to the country of origin in particular, and that the shipping process should take place directly from the country of origin to the Yemeni ports.
