CAPE TOWN Adidas Superstar Bianche Saldi , June 26 (Xinhua) -- South Africa authorities on Monday sounded the alarm for an outbreak of bird flu, the first of its kind in the country.

Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5N8 was first reported on a farm in Mpumalanga Province in northern South Africa last week.

Currently, roughly 19,000 chickens are scheduled to be culled after contracting the highly contagious virus, while 5,000 have already died Adidas Superstar Bianche Nere Saldi , according to official statistics.

"Our trading partners were formally notified of the outbreak in Mpumalanga. Trading partners require a declaration of country freedom of highly pathogenic avian influenza for trade in fresh poultry meat and unprocessed poultry products, which we are currently unable to provide due to the confirmation of HPAI on the Mpumalanga farm," the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) said in its latest update on the outbreak.

The affected farm has been quarantined and culling of the affected animals has been completed, according to the department.

The department said it is conducting forward and backward tracing to trace movement of all poultry in and out of the farm in order to establish the source of the influenza.

A 30km control zone in Mpumalanga and Free State provinces has been established. The two provinces are conducting surveillance in the 30km control zone for other potentially affected properties. All provinces have been notified and are on high alert

To date, no human cases of infection with avian influenza H5N8 have been reported Adidas Superstar Nere Bianche Saldi , however people handling wild birds, sick or dying poultry must wear protective clothing and wash their hands with disinfectants, the department said.

Also on Monday, the opposition Democratic Alliance (DA) requested that Parliament be briefed on plans to contain the bird flu.

Gven the possible major implications for the poultry industry, including the ostrich industry, Parliament must be briefed urgently on what plans the DAFF has in place to contain the outbreak as well as just how far the flu has spread www.scarpesuperstarsaldi.it , the DA said.

Farmers stand to lose their poultry and this will negatively affect the country's chicken exports, the last thing the South African agricultural sector needs is to have its exports seen as undesirable and, worst of all, banned, said Annette Steyn, DA Shadow Minister of Agriculture Adidas Superstar Saldi Italia , Forestry and Fisheries.

Various media outlets have reported that the DAFF has imposed a ban on the sale of live chickens, but there is no official confirmation of this from the department.

"Meat from healthy poultry is safe for consumption as it is subjected to strict meat inspection processes at abattoirs. We urge people to avoid consumption of birds found dead, dying or sick," the DAFF said.

HPAI is a rapidly spreading viral disease that can infect many types of birds and it is highly contagious. It exists naturally in many birds and can be transmitted by coming into contact with infected animals or through ingestion of infected food or water. No effective treatment for the disease has been found

Farmers, as well as the rest of the country, need to know the extent of the bird flu outbreak so action can be taken to stop the spread of the virus Scarpe Adidas Superstar Saldi , Steyn said.

TOKYO, Feb. 11 (Xinhua) -- Japan's cabinet approving for the first time a new charter allowing funds from the nation's Official Development Assistance (ODA) program to be used to supply support to foreign military troops involved in exclusively non-combat operations, has drawn some concern and skepticism from notable political pundits and the public alike.

The charter's approval by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's cabinet Tuesday, marks Japan's first amendment to its foreign aid charter since 2003 and lifts previous restrictions that were put in place inhibiting Japan from granting foreign militaries financial assistance that could be used to help bankroll international conflicts.

The new charter, formerly known as the ODA Charter Adidas Superstar Saldi , has been renamed the "Development Cooperation Charter," and states that aid to foreign militaries will be considered on a case-by-case basis and evaluated on the merits of overseas militaries' involvement in improving the livelihoods of people, such as troops or personnel, conducting disaster relief operations and undertaking other non- combat-related humanitarian operations.

"If the military or military officers of recipient countries are involved in development cooperation for the purpose of improvement of the people's livelihood and nonmilitary activities such as disaster relief, Japan will consider individual programs case by case, while taking into account the significance of extending such aid Adidas Superstar W Nere Bianche Saldi ," the charter states.

"Addressing development issues contributes to the enhancement of the global security environment, and it is necessary for Japan to strengthen its efforts as part of its 'proactive contribution to peace' based on the principle of international cooperation. Japan will utilize its ODA in a strategic and effective manner," reads the charter.

Senior government officials, like Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida, have repeatedly maintained the cabinet's stance that the revised charter is in no way a stepping stone for Japan to expand its global military presence, despite the prime minister Adidas Superstar 2 Bling Bianche Argento Saldi , somewhat to the contrary, stating that he plans to steer Japan towards being a more "active" international force, with constitutional.
