Azerbaijan and Russia closely cooperate in organizing international transport corridors and expanding regular routes, said Azerbaijani Minister of Transport, Communications and High Technologies Rashad Nabiyev in his speech at the event in Baku as part of a business mission of Russian companies to Azerbaijan, APA-Economics reports.

According to him, annual increase in cargo turnover is a positive factor: “Despite the pandemic in 2020, an increase continued and the volume of total cargo transportation was about 8 mln. tonnes last year.”

The minister also added that we hope that the unblocking of transport hubs and the opening of the Zangazur corridor will serve not only the transport potential of Russia and Azerbaijan but serve the entire region.
