Iran, Russia committed to carry out project of North-South transport corridor
Moscow, Oct 10, IRNA – Iranian ambassador in Moscow Mehdi Sanaei said on Monday that presidents of Iran and Russia stress the need to speed up carrying out the international project of North-South transport corridor.
Sanaei made the remarks in a speech to the officials and students of Dagestan State University.
Noting that the presidents of Iran and Russia have met nine times over the course of three years, he said that the current level of Tehran-Moscow relations is unprecedented.
In their latest meeting in Azerbaijan, the two presidents called for accelerating the implementation of North-South corridor, the ambassador said.
North-South corridor is the main part of 7,200 km-long Helsinki-Mumbai transit corridor which links northern Europe to Indian Ocean littoral states and Southeast Asia through Iran and Russia.
