Cargo traffic was suspended after previous agreement had expired
Poland and Russia have signed an agreement on motor freight traffic permits for 2016 after a round of talks in Gdansk.
"We have signed a treaty and exchanged a number of permits which is fully satisfactory. It corresponds with the proportions that existed for the three previous years, and we are completely satisfied," sais Nikolay Asaul, Russia's Deputy Minister of Transport.
Asaul added each party will receive 170,000 permits, including 30,000 permits for third states.
Motor freight traffic between Russia and Poland was suspened on February 1 after the two countries failed to reach agreement on permits for 2016.
