Iran has banned the movement of trucks to Karabakh by passing through Lachin Corridor, APA reports citing Tasnim News Agency.
Director-General of the Office for International Transport and Transit of the Organization of Roads and Transport of Iran Javad Hidayati has signed a decision in this regard.
The organization sent a letter to the trade unions of Iranian international transport companies based on the directive of the Iranian Foreign Ministry dated October 9, 2021.
The decision states that Iranian citizens and drivers are prohibited from entering the Karabakh and Lachin corridors, which are the territory of Azerbaijan.
It was noted that as a sign of respect for the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, the mentioned cases apply to all Iranian citizens, without exception, who try to go to Karabakh through Armenia.
“It is resolutely recommended that Iranian drivers and Iranian citizens, as a sign of respect for the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, not travel to Karabakh through the territory of Armenia, through the Lachin corridor in order to avoid unpleasant situations,” the decision reads.
The decision also strongly informs Iranian private freight companies that issuing documents for trucks to travel to Karabakh is against the law.
