Aussie sheep to return: An Australian Company will soon obtain a license to export live livestock to Kuwait, reports Al-Nahar daily.
The daily quoted a report published by Sydney-based Australian newspaper, The West Australian, on Friday.
“This could happen within days, as the application for the license has been submitted to responsible authorities in the two countries more than two months ago. The license is expected to be out before the end of this month,” says Mike Jordan – head of the Australian branch of the subsidiary.
He revealed two Kuwaiti sheep carriers are preparing to transport live sheep to Kuwait; one of which has the capacity for 80,000 heads while the other is capable of transporting 70,000 heads. The period between issuing the license and starting shipping operations will be less than three weeks, he added.
It is worth mentioning that Kuwaiti Livestock Transport and Trading Company (Al-Mawashi) agreed last month to set up a new company for importing live livestock from South Africa in order to meet the country’s sheep needs after Australia stopped exporting live sheep to the Middle East in the wake of the death of 2,400 heads on board a ship heading to that area.
