      Noked: Postpone Discussion on Dairy Products

      Agriculture Minister Orit Noked on Sunday called on the government not to conduct a discussion Sunday on opening up the Israeli market to foreign dairy products. Noked said in a radio interview that a committee that suggested a plan to allow importation of dairy products had not taken into account a law passed several months ago, and that the plan did not take into account her ministry's point of view.

      On Saturday night, Yisrael Beiteinu officials said that they would oppose a decision made by Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz to allow importation of foreign-produced cheeses.
