    "We can say loud that the container is indeed at Pointe Noire. This container exported by Mr. Okan as exporter, importer is Indycom in France. The country of origin was Turkey, the country of destination is the Congo [DRC]. So the container was not only for the DRC but also ifor Congo Brazzaville.

    More than 25 tons of poultry meat "possibly infected with bird flu," had left Turkey to the port of Matadi (DRC) via the port of Pointe Noire (Congo). The Turkish government, which launched the alert, asked Kinshasa to stem this cargo to preserve human lives.

    Kalema Moussa said that the DRC has requested the return of the container of these chickens to Turkey.

    "We asked that the container is returned to its country of origin. The container did not arrived here, and if that happened we would grasp it. For proof you see the requisition of the prosecutor. And so we asked that the container to be returned to the country"added Moussa Kalema.
