Turkmenistan and Astrakhan will establish cooperation along the “North-South” corridor

Soon Turkmenistan will join the “North-South” International Transport Corridor established by Russia, Iran and India. This was announced at the final briefing of the International Conference of Ministers of Transport of Landlocked Countries by the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan Rashid Meredov.

“This is a well-defined, legally formalized route for the movement of cargo flows in large volumes. The agreement on the international transport corridor was signed in 1998 and entered into force in 2000. Turkmenistan has already started the procedures for its accession to this agreement,” the Turkmen Foreign Minister noted.

In particular, Astrakhan and Ashgabat are actively negotiating the construction of a modern logistics center of Turkmenistan in the Astrakhan region, the establishment of a regular car ferry service between the Olya Commercial Seaport and the Turkmenbashi International Seaport.
