SLOVAK and Ukrainian foreign affairs ministers have agreed on joint radiation measurements to be made on the contentious x-ray scanner that checks for contraband goods on freight trains at the border checkpoint from Ukraine to Slovakia, Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Miroslav Lajčák said on October 5.

“In the week starting October 12 measurements for radiation will be made by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA),” he said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

According to Lajčák, the results of the measurements will be binding for both parties.

“I expect that after that week of measurements at the border checkpoint, service will resume to the full extent, as was the case prior to August 19,” he said. Ukraine briefly halted shipments citing health concerns for railway workers.
