Ukraine to consider transit possibilities of Armenia

ArmInfo. Ukraine is considering  the transit possibilities of Armenia with the aim of entering the  Iranian market. This was in an interview with ArmInfo on March 6 on  the margins of the meeting of the Intergovernmental Commission  TRACECA, said Advisor to the President of the Association of  International Road Transport of Ukraine Konstantin Savchenko.

"The last time we discussed the possibilities of transport  cooperation with Armenia in 2012. It's time to move this issue from  the dead end, "he said. In particular, according to Savchenk, the  Ukrainian delegation headed by the Deputy Minister of Infrastructure  of Ukraine visited the Ministry of Transport, Communications and IT  of Armenia for this purpose. Referring to the results of the meeting,  Savchenko noted that an agreement had been reached to discuss  possible projects related to the creation of a transit corridor.  "Carriage of goods through Armenia is the shortest way. The Iranian  market is very attractive for Ukraine, in other words, it is an  "unpacked field", he remarked. In this vein, the Ukrainian  representative noted that today on the agenda in Ukraine is the  construction of roads, for which the country is considering the  import of bitumen from Iran at more favorable prices.

In addition, Savchenko noted the importance of liberalization of road  transport. "Armenia is now working with many countries, why not join  Ukraine in their number? In particular, it is possible to create a  so-called hub in Yerevan, where a cargo from Europe via Armenia will  be delivered to the Iranian market, "he said.

During the meeting of the Ukrainian delegation in the Ministry of  Transport, Communications and IT, the participants discussed the  possibilities of expanding cargo transportation between the  countries, in particular, touched on a number of issues related to  the introduction of changes to the agreement signed between the  countries in 2007.

TRACECA is a program of international cooperation between the  European Union and partner countries on the organization of the  transport corridor Europe-Caucasus-Asia, which was established in  1993 on the basis of the Brussels Declaration with the participation  of Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan,  Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan. Soon the program was joined  by Moldova, Mongolia and Ukraine; in 2000 - Turkey, Romania and  Bulgaria, in 2009 - Iran. The TRACECA program consists of various  projects, some of which have already been completed by early 2016.  Among them - a project to provide technical assistance, uniform for  all types of transportation; The project of training of employees of  branch departments. The last time in Armenia the meeting was held in  2003.
