Tajikistan is interested in the cargo transportation via the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars (BTK) railway, Tajikistan’s Ambassador to Azerbaijan, Zohir Saidov, told Trend Agency.
“We want to benefit from Azerbaijan’s transit opportunities, all the more so, Azerbaijan has large ports and Turkmenistan’s Turkmenbashi port is also good. “It is a very convenient route for us,” Saidov said.
The ambassador added that Tajikistan’s interest in the transportation of its cargoes via the BTK was also previously mentioned during the high-level bilateral meetings.
Saidov reminded that currently, Tajikistan transports around a million metric tons of cargo through Azerbaijan’s territory per year. He added that the opening of Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway will provide more convenient and quick transportation of cargo from Tajikistan.
