AMMAN — Kuwait on Tuesday lifted its ban on some of Jordan’s fruits and vegetables, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. The ban was imposed three months ago after claims that produce contained chemical pesticide residues.

According to the Kuwaiti statement, products have to be accompanied with certificates of safety issued by accredited agencies. The Agriculture Ministry called on exporters to commit to the standards of safety and requirements of importing countries.
