A break in fiber optic cable has interrupted Iran-Turkey cross-border trade, says spokesperson of the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration, Rouhollah Latifi.
“Since March 16, more than 2,500 wagons have carried cargo to and from Turkey via Razi border-crossing, which is Iran’s sole rail connection with the neighboring country. However, fiber optic cable damage has hindered customs data communications between the two sides in recent days,” he said. 
Latifi called on Iran Telecommunications Company to immediately address the issue, given the fact that all land border-crossings between the two countries are closed to prevent the spread of coronavirus, Mehr News Agency reported.
