The governor of Serakhs, Iran, in an interview with the ISNA news agency on July 22 spoke about the resumption of trade between Iran and Turkmenistan by rail. He said that as of today, 50 railroad cars cross the border in each direction daily. The stoppage of rail traffic was caused by the threat of the spread of COVID-19.
Moghaddam emphasized the productivity of Turkmen-Iranian cooperation, which made it possible to remove quantitative limits on the daytime transit of freight wagons and install disinfection tunnels. The governor noted that Turkmenistan has also allowed some 800 railcars from Iran that were previously stuck at the border to pass through.
Back in March of this year, Turkmenistan adopted a temporary procedure for the transportation of goods from abroad, thanks to which the country has provided a normal regime of commodity supplies.
