Syria-Iraq, Economics, 8/11/2005
Syria announced on Wednesday that all Syrian trucks on the border with Iraq were allowed to pass into Syria, noting that an "unspecified Iraqi barrier," was the cause behind this issue.
Syria's Director of Customs Basel Sannoufa told SANA that "All Syrian drivers were permitted to enter into the Syrian territories yesterday except 20 of them who are expected to pass later on today."
Answering a question on empty Syrian trucks that were stopped at Iraqi crossing point of Rabiaa, the official noted that "he who halted those drivers was an unidentified barrier from the Iraqi side of the borders."
Meantime, He denied rumors of procedures form the Jordanian side against trucks coming from Syria pointing out to the presence of an agreement with Jordan to ease truck passage between the two sides and saying that it was abided by, and that there was an understanding to install projectors to enhance the efficiency of truck inspections coming from either side of the border.
