Iran, Belarus to implement transport corridor project

TEHRAN, August 17, 2017

Iran and Belarus have called for stepping up interaction to implement the North-South international transport corridor project, said a report.

The two sides discussed the prospects of Belarus - Iran cooperation in transportation and logistics, the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs told BelTA, added the Iran Daily News report.

The meeting was held between Iran's Deputy Roads and Urban Development Minister Davood Keshavarzian and the Belarus Ambassador to Iran Yuri Lazarchik, it said.

The two sides also underlined the importance of setting up a Belarusian-Iranian committee on cooperation in transportation and arranging the committee's first session in Tehran soon.

The North-South transport corridor is designed to enable transportation between the Baltic Sea states and India via Iran.

The corridor is supposed to reduce the transportation distance by several times compared to transportation by sea via the Suez Canal.

The cost of transportation will also be reduced, added the report.
