Iran restricts Nimroz-bound transit vehicles

A number of Afghan truck drivers protested at the Bandar Abbas border as the Iranian government has banned the entry of transit trucks bound for southwestern Nimroz province.

One thousand trucks are waiting to enter Afghanistan, causing a daily loss of 18 million AFN to the provincial customs department.

The restrictions are on transit vehicles with substandard fuel tanks; however, some protestors said their trucks had standard fuel tanks, but Iranian authorities had kept out vehicles stranded over the past 10 days.

Nimroz Customs Director Ilhamuddin Mazhar said they held a meeting on Sunday and decided to send a delegation to Iran for resolving the problem.
