BEIJING -- Mongolia has resumed imports of dairy cows from China, which were suspended for about two months after an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease, China's top quality regulator said Tuesday.

The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said 50 Holstein cows had tested safe and entered Mongolia via an Inner Mongolia city, Erenhot.

The Mongolian government suspended imports at the end of 2008, after  foot-and-mouth disease type Asia-1 was detected in China's northwestern Gansu Province.
