OMAN - The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MoAF) has denied the report published in a Saudi newspaper (Al Yaum) regarding export of a cattle shipment from Oman.

Refuting the report, MoAF tweeted that it had exported a single shipment of 1,100 Somali cows on 1 December 2016 from Port Sultan Qaboos and that the shipment was exported as per norms.
It also said that documents stating issuance of the certificate of origin by the Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry, a veterinary health certificate from the ministry and a customs declaration from the ROP were also furnished.
