Turkey lifts ban on direct air cargo trade with Armenia – foreign ministry confirms


YEREVAN, JANUARY 6, ARTSAKHPRESS. Turkey has lifted the ban on direct air cargo transport with Armenia, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Vahan Hunanyan said in response to a query from ARMENPRESS.

“Indeed, the Turkish side notified us today that the ban on direct air cargo transport has been lifted. We’d like to remind that conducting Armenia-Turkey direct air cargo transport was one of the agreements reached at the 1 July 2022 meeting of the special representatives [for normalization]. We expect that the other agreement – ensuring the possibility of land border crossing for citizens of third countries – will also be swiftly realized,” Hunanyan said.

Earlier on January 6 Turkish media reported that Armenia and Turkey started direct air cargo trade.
