Georgia, Iran, Azerbaijan to Launch Transport Corridor

Heads of Georgian, Iranian and Azerbaijani railroads have discussed the issue of launching the new South-West Transport Corridor where Georgia will play a vital transit role connecting Persian Gulf and India to Europe. In a meeting held in the Georgian capital Tbilisi on Tuesday, the three sides agreed to create a working group to coordinate joint work, Tbilisi-based newspaper Georgia Today reported. “The project is very important as it links two big economies with the fastest route. The project will increase cargo turnover on Iranian, Azerbaijani and Georgian railways,” said Levan Sulaberidze, director of GR Logistics and Terminals, a full subsidiary of Georgian Railway. Managing Director of Iran Railways Saeed Mohammadzadeh said the project was very important. Mamuka Bakhtadze, general director of Georgian Railway, Gurbanov and Mohammadzadeh signed the related document at the meeting.
