Iran to consult with Azerbaijan Republic to complete Astara railway jetty

Astara, Aug 1, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi on Friday stressed the need for implementing Astara railway wharf project in the vicinity of Azerbaijan Republic, saying that necessary consultations will be held with the officials of the neighboring state.

Talking to IRNA after a visit to Astara railway jetty and customs house, he added that synergy of the executive bodies in Iran is necessary to complete the Astara railway wharf project, and there must be serious efforts to implement the important commercial project.

Port city of Astara, as the forefront of Iran, has three borders of rail, land and sea, and the implementation of the Astara-Rasht railway is also high on the agenda of the officials, he said.
