Speaking to the Anadolu Agency (AA), Deputy Governor of Agri, Ercan Ates said that the temporary visa requirement between Turkey and Iran began on Sunday and will end on August 31.
"Truck drivers who were not aware of the temporary procedures are waiting at Gurbulak. We are holding talks with Iranian officials to help the truck drivers," Ates stressed.
