Iraq Bans Import of Oranges

By John Lee.

The Iraqi Ministry of Agriculture has banned the import of oranges, due to “the abundance of local produce and support for our national economy“.

A “technical agent” at the ministry, Dr. Mahdi Mohammad al-Qaisi (pictured), confirmed that this is the first ban on the importation of oranges since 2003.
