MOSCOW, February 25. /TASS/. Russia's Deputy Transport Minister Nikolay Asaul believes freight traffic issues with Poland will not repeat in two months when the current agreement expires.
"The two-month period [of issue of permits for road haulage between Russia and Poland - TASS] - during this period together with our Polish colleagues we will monitor the situation, we will see how new legislation affects or not strongly affects our cargo shipments, and after that we will exchange annual quotas. We do not think that this deadlock, the crisis could repeat in two months, " he said in an interview with Rossiya 24 TV channel.
Asaul expressed hope that next time the parties will be able to reach an agreement for a longer period.
On February 1, the term of permits for haulage between Poland and Russia expired. The parties failed to agree o new permits. As a result the truck haulage across the Russian-Polish border was halted.
On February 19, Russia and Poland agreed on temporarily resumption of cargo transit. Asaul said then that Russian and Polish freight carriers will receive 20,000 permits for each country until April 15. Until that date the parties will continue to negotiate on quotas for the whole year.
