EAEU members getting separate checkpoint on Russian-Georgian border

PanARMENIAN.Net - Minister of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure Gnel Sanosyan has weighed in on the congestion of vehicles referring to the crowds at the Upper Lars checkpoint on the Russian-Georgian border, maintaining that the situation is acute due to seasonal factors.

Sanosyan revealed that by the decision of the Russian government another customs checkpoint will be opened, and certain privileges will be established for the EAEU (Eurasian Economic Union) countries.

"We must admit that all parties are making much effort to get out of the situation. For example, if the capacity is 400 [vehicles], but 700 cars are serviced per day, that speaks volumes," the Minister said.

He added that in recent days the Minister of Economy, the Deputy Minister of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure, the employees of the State Revenue Committee have visited Lars to meet with the representatives of the Russian and Georgian sides and hold numerous discussions.
