Kyrgyzstan would temporarily ban all kinds of meat imports from Mexico and the United States, news reports from Bishkek said Tuesday.

The Kyrgyz government decided to suspend the import of meat products from the two countries to avoid a possible spread of swine flu, Musaev, deputy director of the Kyrgyz Agriculture Ministry's veterinary department, was quoted as saying.

Although chicken was the main meat products imported from the United States, Kyrgyzstan decided to ban all kinds of meat imports from Mexico and the United States to avoid possible dangers, he added.

Musaev said Kyrgyzstan would consider canceling the ban when the flu alert was over in the two countries.

All pig farms in Kyrgyzstan were taking precautionary measures required by Agriculture Ministry, he said.
