Pakistan's Federal Secretary of Food and Agriculture Ismail Qurashi has said that Pakistan's poultry industry is fully safe from the bird flu virus.
According to a report on Saturday by Pakistan's APP news agency, Qurashi said that about 12 laboratories were working in the country to monitor the bird flu situation.
He said the member countries of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) could also take benefit from these laboratories.
The food and agriculture secretary said that Pakistan organized a training workshop on the "Bird flu virus" in the country last month.
The food and agriculture ministry is also planning to organize such a workshop to create awareness among the masses about the bird flu and other diseases.
He also told the Geo TV that birds coming from other countries to Pakistan's Sindh province had no bird flu virus.
