Armenian trucks successfully crossed Armenian-Georgian border

Armenian trucks successfully crossed Armenian-Georgian border

ArmInfo. Armenian trucks have successfully crossed the Armenian- Georgian border and are heading to the next customs point on the border with Russia.

As the press service of the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of  Armenia reports, the department and the State Revenue Committee of  Armenia are in operational communication with transit economic  operators in order to organize unhindered freight transportation.

The Ministry of Economy recalls that the decision of the Government  of Georgia of March 2 amended the action plans to prevent the  possible spread of the new coronavirus in Georgia and to quickly  respond to new cases of coronavirus. The changes also include escort  of forwarders (together with their staff) from countries with a high  risk of coronavirus infection from one border crossing point through  Georgia to another border crossing point. Vehicle drivers from the  countries recognized by the World Health Organization as a risk zone  are to be replaced by another individual who is not at risk.

Earlier today at a government meeting, the head of the Ministry of  Economy Tigran Khachatryan reported that by the end of the day on  March 5, the issue of the transportation of Iranian goods by Armenian  wagons through Georgia would be resolved. According to him, the  initially announced number of trucks accumulated on the  Armenian-Georgian road was somewhat overstated. According to the data  of the Ministry, at present 20-30 trucks were "hanging" on the  border, which headed through the territory of Georgia to the Upper  Lars checkpoint in Russia.

It should be noted that on March 3, information appeared that in  order to combat the coronavirus, the Georgian authorities stopped  about 60 Armenian trucks with Iranian goods. As the Prime Minister of  the Republic of Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan, stated yesterday in the  parliament, an agreement was reached with the Georgian leadership on  the issue related to the transportation of Iranian goods by Armenian  trucks through Georgian territory. He noted that it was agreed that  the following transit trucks in Georgia will be accompanied, and if  the receiving party does not mind, then the cars will reach their  destination. "We have already established that the receiving party  does not impose new conditions for the reception of goods. Thus, cars  with Iranian goods will be able to reach their destination. The thing  is that our Georgian colleagues are trying to avoid accumulations of  vehicles  in the territory of Georgia in case third countries do not  accept these trucks, "Pashinyan explained.
