KUWAIT - The Kuwait Municipality's food safety committee discussed with French officials on Monday the safety of beef and poultry imports from France.

This comes after Kuwait in mid-December, last year, lifted a ban imposed on the import of these meats from France.

The ban was imposed following the outbreak of diseases affecting the animals such as bird flu and mad cow disease.

The discussions, held between the French side and Director of the Imported Foods division, who is the Deputy Director of Food Safety, Istiqlal Al-Musallam, focused on France's measures to combat the diseases.
