Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mahmoud Vaezi is to visit Azerbaijan on Wednesday for a two-day stay to launch the construction of the Astara-Astara rail project, director of the ministry’s public relations, Mohammad Reza Farnaqizad, was quoted as saying by IRNA. The Astara-Astara project, which is to connect the two countries’ rail networks—requires the construction of a rail link between the city of Astara in northwestern Iran and an Azeri city with the same name.  Both countries have agreed to construct a rail bridge on Astarachay River near the mutual border. Vaezi, who will be accompanied by Iranian economic and industrial players from both state and private sectors, is also scheduled to meet Azeri officials for discussing ways of promoting bilateral ties.
