Tehran, Sofia Discuss New Transit Route to Europe

Deputy Minister of Roads and Urban Development Davoud Keshavarzian met with Bulgarian Minister of Transport, Information Technology and Communications Ivaylo Moskovski in Sofia to discuss a new transit corridor from Iran to Europe.  According to the news portal of Iran Road Maintenance and Transportation Organization reported on Wednesday, Iran, Bulgaria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Greece recently signed a draft agreement to press ahead with a proposed route connecting the Persian Gulf to the Black Sea—an alternative to the current corridor that passes through Turkey.
Keshavarzian and the Bulgarian minister called on the states involved to swiftly convene to sign a final agreement and implement the project.
Iran has been looking to diversify its only transit route to Europe, as Iranian trucks have on several occasions been the target of militant attacks on Turkish soil in the past.
