Bulgaria and Turkey to discuss cargo issue in Leipzig

The Transport Ministers of Bulgaria and Turkey – Kristian Krastev and Binali Yieldarim will have talks on May 22 in Leipzig about an agreement for the road transport of cargo on the territory of the two countries.

The meeting takes place after Bulgarian carriers blocked the border checkpoints with Turkey last week, protesting against the restrictions Turkish customs authorities impose on Bulgarian drivers. Yesterday at Kapitan Andreevo checkpoint there was again kilometers’ long line of heavy trucks but all tracks of the checkpoint were functioning.
