Director-General of Transit and International Transportation Affairs Bureau of Iran Road Maintenance and Transportation Organization (RMTO) Javad Hedayati said the member countries of Ashgabat agreement on establishing international transport and communications corridor Uzbekistan-Turkmenistan-Iran-Oman will soon hold a meeting.
These countries are TIR Convention members, Hedayati stated, adding that there is the possibility for Iranian and Omani trucks to pass through the territory of these countries, and all these issues will be discussed in the upcoming meeting, the Iranian news agency ILNA reported last Friday.
Javad Hedayati noted the agreements reached during the recent visit of Iranian delegation to Oman and said that considering Oman is a member state of the North-South transport corridor, some of those agreements are for activating the corridor to connect Oman to the CIS states and Russia through Iran.
He emphasized that all these agreements have been made while Turkmenistan has recently announced that it will allow trucks to pass through its borders starting from June 1.
Iran and Turkmenistan have four common border crossings, namely Sarakhs, Lotfabad, and Bajgiran crossings in Khorasan Razavi province as well as Incheburun border crossing in Golestan Province.
