Azerbaijani police and customs officers stationed on the Goris-Kafan interstate road have started checking not only Iranian trucks, but also buses from today, the Armenian edition of Aysor.am reports with reference to the vice-mayor of the city of Goris Karo Kocharyan.

The mayor also noted that significant forces are concentrated in the vicinity of the Azerbaijani police post.

'Although Azerbaijanis do not stop Armenian cars, they also do not allow us to stop. They just let us through and start checking cars with Iranian number plates,' Kocharyan said.

Recall that more than 20 km of the above-mentioned route passes through the territory of Azerbaijan (Eyvazli village of Gubadli district). It is on this site that the special forces of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the State Customs Committee are stationed.

Vehicle checks began after numerous Iranian trucks began to illegally enter the zone of responsibility of Russian peacekeepers in Karabakh. Their route from Iran also goes along the Goris-Kafan highway.

From September 12, Azerbaijani customs officers began to collect a state duty from Iranian cars for driving through the territory of Azerbaijan.
