An Iranian official has announced that the Parviz Khan crossing with Iraq has now been designated an official border control point.
“The Parviz Khan Border in the city of Qasr-e Shirin was recognized as one of the country's official crossings last week,” Head of the Kermanshah Commerce Department, Asghar Mirzaei told IRNA on Sunday.
“This border region will now become the country's export terminal,” he added.
Kermanshah has been Iran's leading province in terms of exports to Iraq despite setbacks such as the closure of the Khosravi Customs Office or the temporary shutdown of border markets.
Kermanshah, located in the far west of the country, also ranks eighth amongst Iran's 30 provinces in terms of overall exports.
