Armenia says checkpoint on Turkish border ready for operation

The Margara checkpoint on the Armenian-Turkish border is ready for operation, the press service of the Armenian Foreign Ministry has told Sputnik Armenia.

“The Margara border checkpoint is ready for operation, and the Armenian side expects positive signals from Turkey on opening the border to citizens of third countries, also for persons with diplomatic passports,” the department said.

In mid-November, the head of the State Revenue Committee of Armenia, Rustam Badasyan, said that the construction of a new checkpoint was nearing completion.
