Armenian Truck Drivers Block Turkey-Georgia Border

Trucks, whose drivers are mostly Armenians, have blocked the Sarp checkpoint in both directions, in Hopa town on Turkey’s border with Georgia since Sunday, and they do not allow any vehicles to go through the border checkpoint.

Thus, the drivers are trying to protest against the Georgian authorities’ intentional huge fines and customs obstacles set before trucks with Turkish license plates, according to Armweeklynews.

As a result, the Armenian companies, which are waiting for cargo from Turkey, will have a long wait.

More than two dozen companies in Hopa are engaged in cargo transportation to Armenia, Russia, Azerbaijan and Central Asia, via Georgia.
