Iran to present its solution offer to Turkey in April

ANKARA - Turkey requested Iran to lift or revise the `fuel oil price difference` tax payment applicable to Turkish transport vehicles in Iran, Turkey’s General Directorate for Highways announced on Monday.

According to the announcement on the Directorate General for Highways’ website, Iran will be presenting its solution offer to Turkey in April.

Iran takes a `fuel oil price difference` tax from Turkish transporting companies for goods transported to Iran, which is a 10 percent additional tax payment. Turkish authorities stress that this creates unfair competition against Turkish transporting companies.
