Iraq closes Shoushmi border with Iran

IRNA – Iraq closed its Shoushmi border with Iran’s Kermanshah province on Tuesday morning as part of efforts to control the spread of Coronavirus, said Paveh Governor Parviz Idehpour.

He told IRNA that the staff members of the Iraqi side were not present at the site for border transactions on Tuesday morning.

The official further noted that today (Tuesday), no exchanges were made on the border, hoping that the border market will reopen soon.

Over the past days and after the spread of Coronavirus, the Iraqi government canceled flights to Iran and closed the Shalamcheh border.
