Turkmenistan and Iran open another shared border crossing

The statement was made by the head of the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration, Seyyed Rouhollah Latifi.

On the basis of the agreements reached, the authorities of Turkmenistan and Iran opened a shared border crossing Inche Borron on October 14. The border, which has been closed over the past 20 months, is allowed to accept the trucks. It was reported by the Iranian news agency Mehr.

The statement was made by the head of the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration, Seyyed Rouhollah Latifi on October 13.

He stressed that commercial goods from Iran will be delivered to Turkmenistan through the corresponding crossing. As part of the decision made by both parties, the exported goods will enter Turkmenistan by lorries and the consignments will be transported to the final destinations by Turkmen trucks at the Turkmen customs.

The official noted that the border crossing Inche Borron was closed due to the outbreak of coronavirus infection. He added that the Bajgiran checkpoint in Khorasan-Razavi province has not been reopened since March last year.

It should be added that earlier Ashgabat allowed to open the Sarakhs and Lotfabad checkpoints. The terminal now have special disinfection tunnels for trucks.
