Agriculture Minister Yair Shamir (Yisrael Beytenu) and Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch (Yisrael Beytenu) announced on Sunday that they would remove their appeal against a bill prohibiting the trade of foie gras, on the condition that the bill only prohibit the trade -– and not the personal import – of the disputed product. 

By prohibiting the trade instead of the import, the country could avoid violating international trade agreements and thereby bringing economic harm to itself, the ministers said.
