To prevent the spread of coronavirus, no Chinese vessels may approach the Iranian ports without permission, Director General of the Ports and Maritime Organization in Iran’s southern Hormozgan province Allahmurad Afifipour said.
Afifipour made the remark at a press conference in Iran, Trend reported.
“There also must be permitted for the import of the products from China,” the director-general added. “The Chinese vessels will be allowed to moor at the ports after inspection. Iran does not import meat, rice, oil, sugar and granulated sugar from China.”
There are 71 small and big ports in the province and more than 80 million tons of goods are loaded and unloaded in the ports of the province.
