"The Nisib crossing, which the Syrian army has recently recovered from the insurgency, is a major economic artery for Jordan," al-Lozi told Jordan's Al-Ghad newspaper.
For his part, the head of the Jordanian truck owners, Mohammed Al-Daoud, suggested that "open the way for the movement of goods exchange in the Syrian-Jordanian Free Zone within two weeks."
Said that "if the border is opened for the exchange of goods between the two countries, the method of exchange will be mostly similar to what is currently with Iraq, that is unloading the load of Jordanian trucks in Syria and vice versa in the free zone."

The opening of the crossing will benefit the Syrian and Jordanian sides by supplying the two countries' coffers. In addition, this will lead to the return of goods movement between Lebanon and Jordan on the one hand and between Lebanon and the Gulf States and Iraq on the other.
