"After outbreak of coronavirus in neighboring countries, the movement of freight vehicles entering Azerbaijan from these countries, including from Iran, is controlled by police officers upon Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev’s order," the statement said.
"As a result of tightening the control over the transportation of transit goods through Azerbaijan, the police officers will control the process as long as the vehicles are within the country," the statement said. "The drivers outside their vehicles may rest only in the special places."
"While having a rest in special places, drivers are provided with food at the expense of the Interior Ministry," the statement said. "Special prayer rooms and rooms for medical check up have been created there."
"After the rest, drivers, accompanied by traffic police officers, continue their trips," the statement said. "They are not allowed to communicate with local citizens throughout the movement and stop vehicles outside the schedule with the exception of emergency situations." ■
