(IraqiNews.com) Chairman of the Turkish Poultry Promotion Group Mujdat Sezer announced on Sunday, that the Iraqi government has taken a series of serious measures to restrict the import of the Turkish poultry.

Global Meat News website quoted Sezer as saying, “Iraq decided to stop all imports of full chickens from Turkey. We don’t know the reason yet, but we’re currently investigating the situation with the Iraqi ministry.”

Sezer added, “I think this problem will be solved, but it will take a little time. The Iraqi market is very changeable and doesn’t make long-term decisions in the usual way of most countries.”

The United Nations data indicated that Turkish producers have exported about 227,000 tons of poultry to Iraq last year.
