It is impossible not to draw attention to the event that took place today at the IX International Rail Business Forum, held in Sochi. We are talking about signing an agreement that can significantly increase the volume of freight traffic and develop a segment of passenger traffic under the North-South program from Russia to Iran and further to India. The agreement was signed by representatives of three states participating in the implementation of an ambitious project: the aforementioned Russia and Iran, as well as Azerbaijan.

Information Service APA reports that the signatures of the document, the purpose of which is to integrate the railway networks of Russia, Azerbaijan and Iran, have been put by: President of Russian Railways Oleg Belozerov, Chairman of Azerbaijan Railways CJSC Javid Gurbanov, as well as Director General of Iran Railways Mohsun Purseid Agaya.

Russia, Azerbaijan and Iran signed an agreement on the development of integration under the North-South railway route program


The plans - the expansion of partnership in the field of transcontinental freight. It was decided to establish a coordinating committee for the North-South program, which will work to accelerate the development of logistics and route infrastructure.

Press office Railways:
The agreement reflects provisions on railway tariffs for attracting cargo traffic and further developing the routes of the international North-South transport corridor, including the organization of an experienced container train Bandar-Abbas-Moscow.


It is noteworthy that Finland intends to join the Russian-Azerbaijani-Iranian agreement. The head of the Finnish state railway concern, Mikaeel Aro, took part in the meeting and discussed the possibility of extending the North-South route to Finnish territory.

        Response to sanctions and change of economic partners from western to less promising to eastern (who really need our products and who will offer a lot in return).
        It is quite logical to invest in conveyor infrastructure.

          Not only in transport, there is still a project for the supply of electricity from Russia to Iran through the territory of Azerbaijan

        This is not just a promising transport corridor. This is greetings to the Suez Canal, followed by Dardannel with the Bosporus and Gibraltar.
        It turns out that Russia can leave the straits alone, and the benefit is even greater than the ownership of the straits.

          Contrasting sea and railroads is at least stupid. One another is mutually complementary. It’s just that the volume and reliability of transportation increase significantly and there is absolutely no point in abandoning the sea route.

            I will add, even a comparison of the cargo flow of any of the straits separately, is incommensurable with the railway, not in favor of the latter.

            I do not oppose it, just the channels listed above can no longer cope with the flow of ships. Egypt has already dug another parallel to the Suez Canal, but freight traffic is growing faster than the canal capacity. Again, the dependence on the possible overlap of the Bosphorus disappears (during World War I, the Turks actually buried Russia's sea trade on the Black Sea), and in the event of a cataclysm, Gibraltar too. I'm not talking about the speed of delivery of goods by rail.

      Azerbaijan has proposed this project for a long time. Finally, things got going. Our section is ready for a long time. By the end of the year, a bridge will be built across the Astara River between Azerbaijan and Iran. The matter is small. Section on Iranian territory. I read below again the negative addressed to us - "we are waiting for disgrace in Azerbaijan." We are no strangers ... Let them think what they want. Many on the site feel fierce hatred of Azerbaijan. Although they are unlikely to be able to name the reason. We are deliberately bad for them ..

      The gauge width with 1520 and 1524 mm indices also occurs in a number of states. These are mainly countries of the former USSR and bordering it: Finland, Mongolia, Afghanistan. Of course, this does not mean that other gauges are not applied there.

    Dry transportation to Iranian port. A very promising project. A bit "in opposition" to the great silk road. Let the dragon sit on the priest evenly, think about his behavior.

      They talked for a long time. If I remember even with the Soviets.
      Everything rested on Iranian sanctions. May God break the ice.
      And the Finns fussed, even strange as that.
      The truth is obvious to them.
      I wonder what the island brethren will bark.

    It is noteworthy that Finland intends to join the Russian-Azerbaijani-Iranian treaty.
    The news is interesting. The economic potential of cooperation is substantial.
    It would be necessary for the Finns to hint that if they join NATO, they could fall out of this chain.

    And I think it is better and cheaper than the previously proposed Caspian-Persian Gulf canal. It is easier to connect the railway than to "dig" the Iranian plateau. As long as the railway can handle the flow of cargo. You can connect Norway and Sweden - here is a direct land corridor from Scandinavia to India. good hi

    Dear, as they say do not shout, the gop has not yet jumped, while this is a project, we will look further, of course, the route is beneficial to all the participating states. There is not only trade, then, of course, if things go, it’s already strategic relationship

    The USA were the best kents with the Persians! Even at the same time, the ultra-modern F-14, with Phoenix missiles, was shipped in abundance. Now, even on one hectare with ... they will not be! and we find ourselves in the Persian Gulf through a disputed territory (all the wars between Iraq and Iran were precisely because of the Shatt al-Arab basin). And the Persian Gulf itself is controlled by pro-American regimes - Kuwait, CA, Qatar , UAE and exit Oman. Good alternative! wassat
    In general, the level of the Caspian Sea is lower than 32m. Than the ocean. If you compare, the water will reach Volgograd. And if using locks, then to get out of the Caspian pit you need to raise the ships to the height of a 10-storey building! rivers, but in Iran itself, mountains. It will not be a canal, but continuous lock staircases. And who will pump water? This is not an alternative, it is sheer torment! laughing recourse hi

    The news is good, there railway is almost ready. A branch has already been built on the territory of Armenia and Azerbaijan. Then, due to disagreements, Armenia made part of the way out of fear that it might attack. Trade with Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran and India is a very priority.

    But about the Finns .. here we need to understand in more detail. We with Finns and so trade. I can’t say a lot or a little. But someone above spoke out about the incomparable volume of goods by rail and by water. The thought is right, it is. And now let's continue it. From that side of the road will be India, goods will be flocking to India by water and railway and will be sent in our direction. But on the other hand, the Finns want to become with all the consequences. And we, instead of becoming that endpoint, where goods will flock, where ports and railway transport will be loaded, where active development will go .. we start talking - it’s so good, we are not isolated! Even Finns are with us, let them think again about NATO and the hedgehog with them .. it’s better with us!

    I will say the following - the Finns will first make us a transit territory, and only then they will join those organizations that they consider necessary, including NATO and the hedgehog with them.
