Nikolay Vlasov Met with Director General of General Directorate for Animal Health, Food Safety and Nutrition of Italy Silvio Borello

On November, 1 Deputy Head of the Rosselkhoznadzor Nikolay Vlasov held talks with the Italian delegation led by Director General of the General Directorate for Animal Health, Food Safety and Nutrition of the Italian Republic Silvio Borello.

The representatives of the administration of the Zooprophylaxis Institute of the OIE Piedmont Reference Center and the EU Reference Laboratory for BSE also arrived in Russia as part of the delegation (BSE is bovine spongiform encephalopathy).

A day earlier the Italian colleagues visited the Rosselkhoznadzor-subordinate Federal Center for Animal Health (FGBI “ARRIAH”) where they agreed on scientific cooperation with this institution. Silvio Borello noted the Italian party’s interest in sending specialists to the FGBI “ARRIAH” to exchange experience on prophylaxis and prevention of dangerous animal diseases. Nikolay Vlasov supported this initiative.

In addition the Deputy Head of the Rosselkhoznadzor said that the Service had prepared a dossier for the OIE official recognition of Russia's bovine spongiform encephalopathy status. The draft of this document will be forwarded to the Zooprophylaxis Institute of the OIE Piedmont Reference Center and the EU Reference Laboratory for BSE in the near future for consultation with Italian experts and clarification of the wording. Silvio Borello promised that the Italian side would assist in this matter and provide a document for study that was prepared in Italy to obtain a similar status.

In addition, during the negotiations the parties agreed to cooperate in prevention and control of African swine fever and avian influenza.
