The Belarusian agriculture ministry's Department for Veterinarian and Food Control has lifted a ban on imports of poultry and poultry meat from Germany.

The ban was introduced in October 2014 over cases of avian influenza reported in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

According to the department, the ban has been lifted as fresh cases of the disease have not been registered in Germany for 12 months.
