Armenia official reveals details about regional rail projects

PanARMENIAN.Net – Armenian Minister of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure Gnel Sanosyan has revealed details from a regional project aimed at unblocking transport communications. Sanosyan told reporters after a Cabinet meeting on Thursday, August 12 that the unblocking will benefit all the countries of the region, and not just Armenia.

“And especially when it comes to the railway, we can not achieve unblocking without the construction of infrastructure, because there are sections where the former railway network does not exist, so a new one must be built,” Sputnik Armenia cited Sanosyan as saying.

According to him, the railway will travel through Nakhijevan – the autonomous region of Azerbaijan – and Meghri in the south of Armenia. He noted that the railway might even reach Ijevan in the country’s northeast, provided that peace in the region is achieved․

New rail and road routes in the South Caucasus are expected to connect the Azerbaijani Autonomous Republic of Nakhichevan with the rest of the country, for which a road will be built through the territory of Armenia. There will also be road and rail routes through the territory of Azerbaijan to connect Armenia to Russia.
