Transit Trucks Held UpTransit Trucks Held Up

Lack of cooperation from Turkish border officials in easing the admission process of Iranian transit trucks has resulted in a long line of 750 transit trucks at Barzargan border checkpoint (in Maku County, West Azerbaijan Province), Mohammad Javad Atrchian, the director general of border transit and terminals of Iran’s Road Maintenance and Transportation Organization (RMTO), said on Wednesday, as reported by Mehr news agency. The problems started after transit companies simultaneously decided to resume their activities after the Nowruz holiday season.  Earlier, the manager of Maku border terminal Aidin Rahmani said an increase in the amount of exports since the beginning of the new Iranian calendar year (started March 20) could be another reason for the lengthy row of transit trucks near the border, IRNA reported on Sunday.
