"I must also say that no country has introduced restrictions on cargo transportation, including Azerbaijan. As you know, Azerbaijan is a transit country," President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said at the opening of Goranboy District Central Hospital, ONA reports.
"We have been trying to expand our transit potential for many years and have been able to achieve this. There are no restrictions on transit cargo. However, paying special attention to this area, we work in an organized manner to deliver transit goods, in particular the goods arriving in our country from the southern direction for both Azerbaijani consumers and for those in neighboring countries. Special columns composed of relevant trucks are formed and a police escort is provided. In addition, I have asked for foreign drivers to be provided with food so that they don’t get often leave their cars and visit public places. In other words, careful steps thought to the smallest detail are being taken, and their purpose is to protect the citizens of Azerbaijan from this disease. So far, all our actions have been successful. We are always in contact with the World Health Organization. Work is underway to deliver tests to our country. This issue is being resolved," the head of state said.
