Once Zangazur corridor is opened, it will further increase transportation capabilities of countries from region – President Ilham Aliyev

Once the Zangazur corridor is opened, it will further increase the transportation capabilities of the countries from the region and will be beneficial to all countries along the route, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said addressing the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) member states, Trend reports.

"During the last 20 years 19.000 km of highways and 1400 km of railroads were either built or extensively repaired in Azerbaijan. Today Azerbaijan is building thousands of kilometers of highways and hundreds of kilometers of railroads in the liberated territories after the victory in the Second Karabakh War of 2020.

Azerbaijan has one of the largest civilian air cargo fleets in our region with 18 planes.

By the end of 2024, the number of international airports in Azerbaijan will increase from today’s 7 to 9.

The resolution of the Karabakh conflict at the end of 2020 created new opportunities for the development of the transport connectivity projects in our region. Once the Zangazur corridor is opened, it will further increase the transportation capabilities of the countries from the region and will be beneficial to all countries along the route," the head of state said.
