WARSAW, February 1. /TASS/. Representatives of Russian and Polish transport ministries will try to resolve the problem with issuing licenses for truck haulage between the two countries at today’s talks in Warsaw.
The meeting at the level of experts is held in the framework of the session of the Joint Commission on International Truck Haulage. On the initiative of the Polish side, truck haulage between the two countries, including transit, are suspended from February 1.
Russia and Poland annually coordinate the number of licenses for mutual truck haulage, including transit.
"The peculiarity of the current situation is that the transport ministries of the two countries were not able to agree on the number of licenses for their respective transporters for 2016," head of the Association of International Truck Haulage Andrey Kurushin said. "Several rounds of talks were already held but the Polish delegation refuses to propose the number of licenses for exchange to the Russian side and acts very unconstructively," he added.
According to Poland’s Vice Minister of Infrastructure Jerzy Schmidt, Warsaw does not agree with the changes that Moscow introduced in this sphere last December by limiting opportunities for third countries to transport goods. "These unilateral decisions are in conflict with international laws on truck haulage and Polish-Russian agreement from 1996," Schmidt said.
Russia’s Transport Ministry said that Moscow "will proceed from the necessity of immediately establishing quotas for truck haulage in 2016."
