IRKUTSK, August 4. /TASS/. Representatives of Russia’s Transport Ministry may hold talks with their Turkish colleagues regarding the issue of resuming motor freight transportation in the autumn, Deputy Transport Minister Nikolai Asaul told TASS Thursday.

"They (the Turkish side - TASS) vowed to grant us (freight transportation permits - TASS) after restoration of relations but no permits have been issued yet," he said, adding that the Russian side "has expressed readiness to hold negotiations", though "the exact date (of the talks) have not been outlined yet."

According to Asaul, there are no mass freight transportations between the two countries at the moment.

"There are no permits, meaning there is no transportation (between the countries - TASS)," he said.

Freight transportation between Russia and Turkey was frozen starting February 1, 2016 as the countries failed to extend related permits for transport companies.

Earlier Russia’s Transport Minister Maksim Sokolov said the Ministry was ready to discuss the issue of raising the number of permits with the Turkish side.

The number of freight transportation permits for carriage from Turkey to Russia was slashed from 8,000 to 2,000 within sanctions Russia imposed last year as the crisis in relations between the two countries escalated.
