Uzbekistan Interested in Cargo Transportation by "Baku-Tbilisi-Kars" Railroad

Uzbekistan is interested in actively using and increasing the volume of transportation of its foreign trade cargoes via the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars (BTC) railroad, Uzbek Ambassador to Azerbaijan Sherzod Fayziyev told Trend.

“The wide use of the Transcaucasian transport corridor for the transportation of increasing volumes of export-import cargoes meets the interests of our states,” he said. “The BTC railway corridor introduced in October 2017, as well as the creation of infrastructure at the Baku International Sea Trade Port under construction in the Alat settlement, will realize the huge transit, transport and communication potential of our countries and regions.”

“In turn, we hope that Azerbaijan is also interested in using the potential of Uzbekistan, located in the heart of Central Asia and having enormous economic and strategic capabilities. The Free Economic Zone of Navoi also creates a good basis for deepening cooperation in the transport and communication sphere,” Fayziyev noted.
