Armenia, Russia, Azerbaijan mull creation of new transport links

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian, Russian and Azerbaijani Deputy Prime Ministers Mher Grigoryan, Alexei Overchuk and Shahin Mustafa met in Moscow on Saturday, January 30 to discuss new transport corridors that would link Azerbaijan, Armenia and Russia, the Armenian government website says.

The members of the working group decided to set up expert subgroups on issues of railway, road, combined transport communications, security, border, customs, sanitary, veterinary, phytosanitary and other types of control.

The formation of the subgroups is due to be completed by February 2. The first sitting will be held by February 5. It was also decided to hold the next meeting of the trilateral working group in Moscow, with the exact date to be agreed upon by the Deputy PMs.

New rail and road routes in the South Caucasus will connect the Azerbaijani Autonomous Republic of Nakhichevan with the rest of the country, for which a road will be built through the territory of Armenia. There will also be road and rail routes through the territory of Azerbaijan to connect Armenia to Russia.
