Russia plans transit of China goods via Azerbaijan

Tuesday, December 6

Russia and Azerbaijan are readying themselves to sign a cooperation agreement in the field of postal services, Rashid Ismailov, deputy minister of telecom and mass communications of the Russian Federation, told Trend.

He said they were considering delivering goods from China via Azerbaijan, since Azerbaijan is a transit country.

"We considered the delivery of Chinese goods to Russia by our planes, transshipping them from here [Azerbaijan], but Silk Way [Azerbaijani cargo airline] has opened a subsidiary in Moscow which allows delivering goods directly to Moscow or Yekaterinburg, depending on the necessity," Ismailov added.
