"
Iraq decided in early May to ban the import of eggs and chicken from abroad, including Turkey.
The Iraqi government's halt to importing eggs from Turkey has caused a major crisis for Turkish egg producers.
Recently, Turkish egg producers have been forced to destroy one million chickens after they could not afford feed, especially since Turkey exported 85 percent of its eggs to Iraq, according to media reports .
According to information received from representatives of the sector, eight egg producers have gone bankrupt since the beginning of the ban due to their inability to meet their expenses, farmers had to slaughter 17 million chickens, and 1 million chickens were destroyed as they were waiting in poultry slaughterhouses.
