The bilateral cooperation was discussed
A meeting with the Deputy of Transport Minister of the Russian Federation, Alan Lushnikov was held in the “Azerbaijan Railways” CJSC. The head of Azerbaijan Railways CJSC gave detailed information on Azerbaijan’s transport and logistics capabilities, International Trans-Caspian Transportation Route, North-South, South-West transport corridors and Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway connection.
He also added that the International North–South Transport Corridor will play an important role not only in Azerbaijan, Russia and Iran, but also in other regional countries that want to increase their trade turnover.
The International North–South Transport Corridor connects Northern Europe with South-East Asia.
The forecasts show that this corridor will create conditions for the expansion of trade relations of European countries, Russia, Central Asia and Caucasus in the Persian Gulf and India, and the Caspian littoral states with the Black Sea ports.
The issues of further expansion of bilateral cooperation were discussed at the meeting.
Lushnikov, for his part, highly appreciated the work done by the Azerbaijani side within the Corridor and noted the importance of mobilizing all the opportunities for involving the cargo transportation on the route.
