Kazakhstan suspends exports of food staples

NUR-SULTAN, March 24 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan has suspended exports of buckwheat, sugar, potatoes, carrots, onions and cabbages until at least April 15, the Central Asian nation’s Agriculture Ministry said on Tuesday.

The Nur-Sultan government this month declared a state of emergency until the same date over the coronavirus outbreak. Kazakhstan has confirmed 67 cases of the disease so far and has locked down its two biggest cities. (Reporting by Tamara Vaall Writing by Olzhas Auyezov; Editing by Alison Williams)
