MOSCOW, January 30. /TASS/. Poland has turned down Russia's proposal to prolong the 2015 licences for truck haulage between the two countries through to February 15, 2016, the press service of the Russian Transport Ministry said on Saturday.
However, both Russian and Polish truckage companies will have an opportunity to return their trucks to the country of incorporation.
"The Russian side proposed to prolong the 2015 licenses through to February 15, 2016, so as to avert the halting of cargo haulage but unfortunately the Polish officials turned this proposal down and agreed only to give the truckers from both countries, who will have entered the territory of either country before January 31, 2016, to return to the country of registration using the same licenses regardless of the type of haulage transit bilateral or into the territory of a third country," the report said.
