As a person involved in Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway line since beginning, I can say that this is a historic project, Prime Minister of Turkey Binali Yildirim said at the parliamentary group meeting of Justice and Development Party (AKP).

 

He noted that he cannot express the feeling of proud: “We discussed this project in 2004 with Azerbaijani and Georgian counterparts. Implementation of the project means connection of China with Europe through Anatolia. This is a significant corridor which revives historical Silk Road. One of its important parts was Marmaray. We launched it last year. Now, we inaugurated BTK railway”.
