MINSK, 2 March (BelTA) – Belarus and Iran will soon sign an agreement that will enable international freight transportation by road without permits, BelTA learned from Belarusian Transport and Communications Minister Aleksei Avramenko before a session of the ministry's board.

Belarus and Iran advance cooperation in transportation. A document on introducing permit-free international freight transportation by road is nearly ready for signing. The practice will allow logistic companies to more widely use the potential of automobile transport for building new schemes for shipping between Belarus and Iran.

Aleksei Avramenko said: “We have plans concerning permit-free transportation to four countries. We've held negotiations with Iran. I think the agreement will be signed within the next two weeks. It is going through the authorization procedure in Belarus. The Iranian side is also about to complete the relevant authorization granting procedure.”
