The Turkmen-Uzbek online talks on the development of cooperation in the field of transport and communications, held on Thursday, brought together the heads of transport departments and their divisions, customs services and other structures of the two countries, ORIENT reported.

A number of documents were considered on the agenda of the 1st meeting of the Turkmen-Uzbek Working Group on the Development of Transport and Transit, including the Regulation on the transit of citizens of Uzbekistan through checkpoints on the territory of Turkmenistan and permits for transit through the territory of Turkmenistan for service personnel of the refrigerated cars of JSC “Uzbekiston Temir Yullary”, amendments and additions to the Agreement on international automobile passenger and freight traffic.

The issue of granting tariff preferences for the transportation of transit goods through Uzbekistan was also considered. In order to carry out contactless international road cargo transportation, the resumption of the operation of the previously closed checkpoints “Kunyaurgench-Khodjeyli” and “Dashoguz-Shavat” on the Uzbek-Turkmen state border in compliance with all sanitary and epidemiological measures was discussed.

The parties exchanged up-to-date information on the organization of contactless road cargo transportation, providing for the prevention of foreign cars and truck drivers on the territory of Turkmenistan: the transfer of cargo, documents and money takes place at a specially equipped site between checkpoints in neutral territory. Further, the abandoned cargo is disinfected and only then is delivered to the territory of Turkmenistan.
