revealed the Qaimqam district judge, Ahmed Gedian, on Thursday, an agreement between Iraq and Syria, allowing the passage of 800 trucks a day from the Syrian border to Iraq, at the opening of the outlet of the Qaim between the two countries, and deferred to further notice. According to Sputnik.
Gedian explained that "the border crossing between the judiciary, and the Syrian Albukamal, located west of Anbar, west of the country, postponed its opening until further notice because of the incomplete rehabilitation, and the need for some logistics and service, including electricity."
He added that "it is planned according to the meeting held between the Iraqi border outlets and the Syrian side, before the start of the rehabilitation of the port, to receive the port" Qaim-Albukamal "daily 800 trucks coming from Syria."
As for the deadline for the reopening of the port, the Qaim District Commissioner told us that the order was postponed to further notice.
On August 29, Jedian said that the reopening of the Albukamal-Qaim border crossing between Syria and Iraq would be postponed until September 7, due to logistical reasons. It was hoped that it would open on September 1, according to an agreement with the Iraqi border outlets.
Al-Bukamal-Qaim crossing was closed in 2014 as ISIS took control of the Iraqi city of Qaim.
Last April, two buses for visitors from Iraq crossed into Syria from the Iraqi border crossing, the first step to re-open the land border between the two countries.
It is noteworthy that the border outlets in Iraq had announced last March to rehabilitate the existing crossing on the Iraqi-Syrian border, and confirmed at the time of its opening.
Syria is linked with Iraq to three border crossings, two of which are under the control of US forces, the first is the "Arabiya - Rabia", which connects the far northeast of Syria to Iraqi territory, and controlled by the US coalition forces taken by the militias "SDF" (SDF) The other is the Al-Walid-Al-Tanf crossing, which is directly controlled by US and British forces.
The third crossing was Al-Bukamal-Al-Qaim, which the Syrian Arab Army, Iraqi forces and their allies on both sides of the border successfully liberated at the end of 2017 from the militants of the terrorist organization Daesh, following a fierce race of ground forces advancing from Deir Ezzor towards the crossing east. The American and British occupation and their loyal militias in the east of the Euphrates and in Al-Tanf occupied by the American forces.
