Iran, Azerbaijan, Georgia discuss rollout of fresh transit road
(MENAFN) On Tuesday, Dec. 7 Director-General of RMTP Office of International Transit and Transportation Javad Hedayati informed ISNA: “Following a trip to hold two meetings [on road transportation] with Azerbaijan and Georgia, we proposed an initiative to the two countries to create a new transit corridor for regional convergence.”
Director-General of RMTP further said that “of course, this plan was already proposed eight years ago, but due to the fact that many countries were involved in this agreement, it has not been implemented yet and the parties have not reached a consensus.”
Hedayati continued to note that the adoption of this fresh road has the ability to link the Persian Gulf to the Black Sea, stating: “Georgia and Iran are the two main parties to the agreement, as Iran is connected to the free waters through the Persian Gulf, and Georgia has two important trading ports east of the Black Sea; On the other hand, Georgia and Azerbaijan have made great efforts to improve and develop their transportation infrastructure, so we tried to increase cooperation with both these countries.”
