TEHRAN, February 9. /TASS/. The green customs channel between Russia and Iran will soon operate at full capacity, Chairman of the Russian-Iranian Business Council at Russia’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry Vladimir Obydenov told TASS on Thursday.
"So far the ‘green channel’ is not operating at full capacity. The Iranian side has provided us with a list of its nominee companies. However, this is not enough, it is necessary to establish an electronic document interchange," he said.
According to Obydenov, another issue is the reluctance of the Russian customs to accept Iranian certificates of origin as they fail to meet the requirements of the Russian Federation. He added that experts plan to meet in Moscow in the nearest future to develop proposals regarding the matter.
"Experts will resolve the issues and the green customs channel will start operating at full capacity in the nearest future," Chairman said.
