"I think that Pakistan may plan to join the North-South transport corridor. Of course, it should be negotiated… The proposal has come from Azerbaijan and sent to different ministries. Now they are currently working on it," Pakistani Ambassador to Azerbaijan Saeed Khan Mohmand told the Report news agency.
The diplomat stated that the project had importance for Pakistan and is observed positively as it could spur trade and public relations as well as tourism.
The International North-South Transport Corridor is a network of efficient transportation routes by rail, land, and sea which span from South-East Asia to Northern Europe through India, Iran, Azerbaijan, and Russia. The cooperation with the member states of the European Union and the Eurasian Economic Union will positively contribute to the economic growth of Asian countries.
