Turkmenistan does not respond to requests from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Tajikistan regarding the closure of the border for trucks

Turkmenistan has not yet explained the reason why the Tajik wagons were not allowed to enter the territory of the country. This was told by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Tajikistan Sirojiddin Muhriddin .

According to the head of the Tajik Foreign Ministry, in 2017, during the visit of the President of Turkmenistan to Tajikistan, a number of agreements were signed , which indicated that countries should not interfere with each other's activities.

As for the detention of Tajik trucks on the Turkmen border, we still do not know why they were detained. We express the hope that the Turkmen side will take into account these agreements and give us explanations. And we hope that there will be no other problems between us, the Asia-Plusedition quotes the minister as saying .

Recall that a week ago, Turkmenistan suddenly stopped passing trucks across its borders to and from Tajikistan. At the same time, trucks traveling to other countries cross the border without hindrance.

On February 6, it became known that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Tajikistan sent a request to Turkmenistan to clarify the reasons for the delay on the Turkmen border of Tajik trucks.

This is not the first such case. In September 2018, wagons en route to Tajikistan were not allowed into Turkmenistan for a month. Then the Turkmen Foreign Ministry explained this to "security concerns" and "fight against drug trafficking."
