AMMAN — As part of the government efforts and measures to overcome obstacles facing trade with Iraq, Prime Minister Hani Al-Mulqi, Tuesday decided to exempt Iraqi trucks, parked on the Jordanian side of the border from the financial penalties.

The exemption, which came in conjunction with the opening of borders between Jordan and Iraq, would encourage trade movement through the Al Karama-Turaibil border crossing, boost economic relations between the two countries and facilitate the movement of citizens and goods from both directions.

The decision also aims to accelerate the operation of the Kingdom's truck fleet that transport goods and commodities to Iraq, and revive shipping in the port of Aqaba.
