Director General of Transit and Border Terminals of Road Maintenance and Transportation Organization Mohammad Javad Atrchian said to Islamic Republic News Agency that currently three thousand Iranian trucks and the same number Turkish trucks are commuting on the basis of bilateral agreement between the two countries.
"It has been decided that Turkish drivers for the maintenance of their required fuel pay 30 cent euro per liter at entrance gates and 15 cent euro at the time of fueling at fuel stations.”
In return, he added, Turkey has agreed to each Iranian truck which enters that country on the basis of the bilateral agreement to carry a full tank of gas oil with itself.
Referring to the recent meeting between heads of the economic commissions of the two countries in Turkey, Atrchian noted that it was agreed no money will be received as transportation tariff from Iranian and Turkish trucks and currently the trucks pay no money.
However, he further remarked that Turkish trucks traveling to Iran out of the bilateral agreement are not authorized to receive fuel and their fuel tank will be sealed upon arrival in Iran.
He said the two sides have agreed that trucks transportation on the basis of bilateral agreement will enter Iran and receive their fuel out of queue in order to prevent truck congestion at border points of the two countries.
