The government on Tuesday conducted a pilot demonstration of about 100 trucks towards the border port of Trebil with Jordan in preparation for its official opening later.
“The trucks belong to the ministries of commerce and transport and they arrived at the port as part of a practical exercise,” the directorate of the border crossings at the Interior Ministry said in a statement received by the All Iraq agency. “The aim is to find out the suitability of the international road and the readiness of the border terminal to receive passengers and trucks “He said.
The Directorate did not disclose a specific date for the official opening of the port, noting that the pilot flight “proved the readiness of the port to work and receive passengers and goods.”
Taribil is the only port linking Iraq to Jordan and has been closed for more than three years after Daish’s control of Anbar province, where the road passes from Baghdad to the port.
