The UK embassy will finance the construction of a covered terminal for inspecting vehicles and cargoes at the Serkhetabad /former Kushka/ customs at the Turkmen-Afghani border.
For this purpose the UK embassy renders gratuitous help of $500,000.
It is possible that the new terminal will be equipped with facilities, necessary for inspecting cargoes, by the US government, which is allocating about $7 mln to Turkmenistan for an export control program.
Expectedly, if the project of customs terminal construction is a success, similar constructions will be set up in the republic's other border towns.
The choice of the city of Helsinki is not incidental as the capital of Finland had hosted US-Soviet negotiations on the limitation of nuclear stockpiles in 1969
