Israeli, Palestinian agriculture officials cooperate to curb bird flu spread

In light of the fact that "emerging diseases do not recognize borders," officials from the Israeli Agriculture Ministry met with their Palestinian counterparts on Wednesday for an information exchange regarding ongoing avian flu cases, the ministry said.

Israeli and Palestinian delegates met at the Israeli Agriculture Ministry offices in Beit Dagan, where they discussed disease eradication and continued modes of cooperation. The delegates included representatives from the Israeli Agriculture Ministry and Health Ministry, as well as Palestinian Veterinary Services managers from Ramallah and Gaza.

Also attending the meeting were representatives of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the World Organization for Animal Health, the ministry said.
