Chinese authorities closing border for holidays
The Chinese border authorities have sent a notice to their Russian counterparts about the closure of the border (including the land border) for holidays, reports Megafishnet.com.
The notice says that due to the current situation, in accordance with the Chinese rules for the prevention and control of the epidemic, all customs and border inspections personnel, both in ports and at land checkpoints, as well as personnel involved in customs declaration, loading and unloading, must go through a 14-day centralized isolation after the termination of work with cargo.
In order for the above employees to be able to reunite with their families during the Spring Festival (aka Lunar New Year, which falls on February 12 this year) and continue to work after it, ports and automobile checkpoints will be closed until February 14.
From February 15, the crossings will begin to work as usual. This applies to both frozen products and live crab.
