I hope it will happen as soon as possible, there are no obstacles. The second is a very sensitive issue related to humanitarian issues. Here we have also recorded progress.
And thirdly, we talked in great detail about economic issues, the development of economic ties, and first of all, as a first step, we talked about unblocking the transport corridors.
