Iranian studies expert: Armenia-Iran railway construction will remove Armenia’s blockade
YEREVAN, OCTOBER 6, ARMENPRESS. The Armenia-Iran railway construction will be very favorable for Armenia from political point of view. The construction of the railway will pull Armenia out of blockade. Iranian studies expert Gohar Iskandaryan said the aforementioned during the meeting with the journalists on October 6.
“The construction of Iran-Armenia railway is a brilliant project. By the latter Armenia will be able to immediately join the Trans-Iranian Railway which will give us a possibility of having access to the ocean,” she noted adding that if Georgia were involved in the cooperation it would be possible to ensure the entire chain, otherwise Iran could use the Caspian Sea cooperating with Russia.
“Armenpress” reports that Iskandaryan also noted that the construction of Meghri hydro power station was also included in Armenia-Iran cooperation.
“Two hydro power stations are being constructed on both banks of Araks river by Iranian financial means; according to the project, Iran must exploit the two mentioned hydro power stations, but in 15 years the hydro power stations constructed within Armenia borders will pass to Armenia,” noted the expert.
