KARACHI: The government of Pakistan has approached Kenyan authorities to press them to release hundreds of rice containers held at the port by Nairobi, a rice exporter said.
“Rice exporters have also planned to send a delegation to Kenya to discuss the problems faced by them,” said Rafiq Suleman, vice-chairman of the Rice Exporters Association of Pakistan (Reap).
The government has taken up the matter after rice exporters sought its intervention into the dispute. Kenyan authorities have stopped 800 rice containers of Pakistan at the port and refused to release the consignment before laboratory analysis reports on grading are released.
