Iranian and Turkish customs officials reached an agreement to ease border traffic of trucks between the two countries, agreeing to let in over 450 trucks on both sides of the border on a daily basis.
Officials of Iran’s Bazargan Customs Office and Turkey’s Gürbulak Customs agreed to facilitate truck traffic across the border between the two countries, with over 450 trucks on a daily basis.
For this purpose, a joint meeting was held at the venue of Bazargan Customs Department today between officials of the two countries in the presence of governor of Doğubayazıt city, observer of Ağrı province customs officials, director general of customs of Doğubayazıt city and also members of the coordinating committee.
Given the increase in the volume of trade transactions between Iran and Turkey, the two sides agreed to admit 450 trucks on a daily basis in order to manage traffic at Customs Administrations in both sides.
Earlier in mid-January, Iranian and Turkish officials agreed to solve problems obstructing trade interactions across the common border of the two countries, and vowed to further strengthen cooperation and good neighborliness.
