President Ilham Aliyev: Routes that will pass over Astara River and through Aghband area will help cement brotherly relations between Iran and Azerbaijan
“I am happy that as a result of the interaction of Iranian and Azerbaijani representatives, we agreed on the passage of railway and motorway routes along the south bank of the Araz River,” said President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev as he met with the President of Iran Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi in Tashkent, according to Azerbaijan in Focus, reporting AzerTac.
The head of state expressed confidence that this project will be completed in a shorter span of time and become another direction of the North-South Transport Corridor. “As a result, we will have two routes: the one over the Astara River and the other one over the Aghband area. Both routes will help cement brotherly relations between Iran and Azerbaijan and be accessible for our neighbors and partner countries,” the President of Azerbaijan emphasized.
