ANKARA, July 16 /TASS/. Turkey has opened the Bosphorus Strait for the transit of tankers, Reuters reported referring to the statement of sea carrier GAC.
"The traffic for transit vessels is back to normal ... along with non-dangerous cargo carriers," the shipping agent as quoted by the agency.
On Saturday morning Turkey closed the Bosphorus Strait for takers due to security reasons following a military coup attempt in the country.
The Bosphorus is one of world's most important chokepoints for the maritime transit of oil and grain, in particular from Russia. The Strait is the main channel for supplies of Russian grain to Turkey and some other countries.
