Minister underlines creating new transit corridor from Armenia to Persian Gulf

Tehran, IRNA – Iranian Minister of Road and Urban Development stressed the full readiness of Iranian companies for developing transportation between Iran and Armenia and creating a new transit corridor between Armenia and the Persian Gulf through Nordooz village in East Azarbaijan. Rostam Qasemi made the remarks in a meeting with the Minister of Territorial Administration and Infrastructures of Armenia Gnel Sanosyan. The two sides decided to cooperate with Armenia in the construction of tunnels, roads, and buildings. Based on the agreement between the two countries, they decided to complete and develop the north-south corridor from the Nordooz border to Varzeqanand Tabriz, he added. Due to the fact that Iran has good experience in the field of housing construction under the title of National Housing Movement, Iranian construction companies will start activity in Armenia. More than 200 million tons of goods are transited in the north of Iran, which can be considered a good opportunity for developing exchanges between the two countries. Emphasizing the fact that Iran is the fourth largest producer of cement in the world and has also been effective in the field of steel production, Qasemi said that Iranian producers of cement, steel, and construction materials will be introduced to Armenia.
