Iran’s Minister of Roads and Urban Development Abbas Akhoundi has invited Azerbaijan to join a new railroad that links the border town of Parsabad in Iran’s Ardabil Province to Mugan Plain in northwestern Iran and the southern part of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
During a recent meeting with Azerbaijan’s Minister of Transport, Communications and High Technologies Ramin Guluzade in Tehran, Akhoundi talked about the details of Parsabad-Mugan rail link and invited Baku to join the railroad, Trend News Agency reported.
“This is an important project similar to Astara-Astara Railroad between the two countries, which can help expand transport cooperation between Iran and Azerbaijan,” the Iranian minister said.
A delegation led by Guluzade is currently paying a visit to Iran.
