The ban placed by Afghanistan Customs Department on the import of Iranian oil products, cement, steel products, tiles and ceramics is related to Farah border crossing in Iran’s South Khorasan Province only.
Secretary-General of Iran-Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce Mozaffar Alikhani added that the restrictions have been enforced to prevent violations of customs regulations in the absence of an online monitoring system between the two neighboring countries at the border terminal. 
His comments came after Ali Shariati, a member of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture, told ILNA on Saturday that the Afghanistan Customs Department has banned the import of abovementioned commodities from Iran as of Sept. 16, noting that the ban was aligned with the sanctions reimposed by the United States on Iran.
