He explained that "the most important need within the borders of Mehran is the opening of the transit gate and of course we aim to implement the comprehensive project to the borders of Mehran and to expand the customs area by allocating the necessary budget for that," stressing that "the need to allow the entry and exit trucks in the borders of Mehran and Zurbatiya to the territories of the two countries." "One of the measures that will lead to the development of exports within the borders of the two countries is to access the information of goods entering and out, including, for example, that officials of the borders of the two countries accept the images taken by the X-ray system of goods and trucks." He pointed out that "the approval was made on 50 export items in terms of standard specifications and requires the approval of Iraqi officials to do so," asserting "the readiness of Iranian customs to establish a border (Jnkula) border."
