By Elnur Baghishov – Trend:

Turkmenistan does not allow non-Turkmen train wagons to enter the country, Mohammad Samadi, Chairman of North Khorasan Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture, told ISNA, Trend reports.

According to Samadi, the wagons carrying the goods to Turkmenistan should belong to this country.

He added that orders for cement exports have been made from Iran’s North Khorasan Province to Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan over the past few months.

"However, due to the said problem, the bulk of the products have not been exported yet," he said.

Noting the issuing of visas to businessmen in the North Khorasan Province as one of the problems, Samadi said that it can take up to 1 month and 40 days for businessmen of the province to be able to get a visa for Turkmenistan.
