Uzbekistan urges Tajikistan to accept freight wagons through Kudukli
Uzbekistan, Tashkent, Nov.25 / Trend, D. Azizov /
Uzbek Railways urges Tajikistan to accept accumulated wagons with goods destined for Tajikistan through interstate Kudukli point in connection with the suspension of train movement on the Galaba-Amuzang stretch as a result of the explosion and damage of the bridge, a representative of "Uzbekistan Railways" told Trend on Friday.
At present, the Uzbek Railways continues to receive wagons with the goods destined for the station of the Khatlon section of Tajikistan railways from the adjacent railway administrations, the Uzbekistan Railways said.
Today the number of accepted wagons is more than 300 units, which adversely affects the operation of the Uzbek railways.
In this regard, leadership of the Uzbek Railways has repeatedly informed the Tajik counterparts about the willingness to transfer these carriages to Tajikistan through intergovernmental Kudukli point.
However, negotiations on this matter still are vain.
There was an explosion on 30-km railway of the Galaba-Amuzang stage on Nov.16. All passenger and freight traffic was suspended on this section in this regard.
