Iran hints at change in region's transit map with Armenia project

PanARMENIAN.Net - Minister of Roads and Urban Development of Iran Rostam Ghasemi has said that joint infrastructure projects with Armenia will change the transit map of the region.

Ghasemi said in a tweet that thanks to the special mission entrusted to the deputy ministers of the two countries, the problem of what he called "the Caucasian corridor" will be completely changed.

According to him, all those who created the problems should know that they can't block roads in front of Iran. At the same time, he added, it will be difficult to restore "burned bridges".

The Iranian official was probably hinting Azerbaijan, whose police stationed on the Goris-Kapan highway in Armenia demand payments from Iranian trucks drivers.
