At a joint assembly with managing directors and boards of directors of cooperatives and poultry units of Mazandaran, a northern province of Iran, agriculture minister Mohammadreza Eskandari expressed hope to stamp out poultry and eggs imports.
The minister also added that there may even be possibility of poultry exports by the end of the Iranian year (to end on March 20, 2008) under more cooperation of producers.
