MOSCOW, February 4. /TASS/. Poland demanded that Russia increases the number of quotas for freight motor transportation between the countries by nearly threefold, the Russian Transport Ministry said on Thursday after talks held in Warsaw on February 3.
Russia and Poland did not agree on the number of quotas for freight motor transportation in 2016 and freight motor traffic therefore stopped on February 1. Carriers of both countries can return to carrier’s registration country using old permits until February 15.
"The Polish side demanded nearly threefold increase in the number of quotas to be issued by the Russian side for transportation to third countries when discussing the pool of permits. It should be specifically stressed the Russian side made advances towards the Polish side, having clarified and explained requirements of new Russian laws in terms of control over the system of permits for motor transportation. The parties planned to update the 1996 intergovernmental agreement on motor transportation between Russia and Poland within six months," the Russian Transport Ministry said.
The next round of negotiations between the countries should be held in Russia in the nearest future, the ministry added.
