Poland-Russia freight transport in jeopardy?
PR dla Zagranicy
Polish carriers will need to leave Russia on 31 January if a new freight trade agreement between the two countries is not reached by that date.
A Polish-Russian committee on international road transport was scheduled to meet on Thursday in the Baltic port of Gdańsk to negotiate a new agreement.
But the Russian delegation did not arrive at the meeting, Poland’s PAP news agency reported.
“[Russia] has taken various measures, including administrative, whose goal is to eliminate Polish carriers from the Russian market,” Poland’s Deputy Infrastructure Minister Jerzy Szmit said at a press conference. (ua/pk)
