Negotiations between Deputy Head of the Rosselkhoznadzor Yevgeny Nepoklonov and Deputy Director-General of the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) Dr. Monique Eloit

The negotiations took place in Paris and were initiated by the Rosselkhoznadzor.

The negotiations were devoted to opening the OIE regional office in Moscow. Yevgeny Nepoklonov assured the OIE administration that all the measures were being taken to speed up resolution of some technical issues. Monique Eloit expressed hope that the regional office would have started working by the next OIE General Session that would take place in May as usual. This event will be important for both the OIE and the Russian party. In addition to it, the parties discussed current measures taken by the OIE to assess veterinary services of the OIE member States. More than 100 member countries have gone through the first stage of the assessment within recent years and received confidential reports from the OIE with comments and proposals to improve structure of the veterinary services. Some countries have already taken into consideration these comments and are going though the next stages of assessment. Alongside with that, some developed countries such as the EU countries do not consider the OIE assessment to be necessary, referring to the fact that there is already such an authority as the Food and Veterinary Office (FVO) that fulfils the same tasks. However, some EU countries are interested in assessment of their veterinary services performed in the OIE.
