Iran is scheduled to participate in the completion of the Tatev road in Armenia which is supposed to be an alternative for the Goris-Kapan road to connect Iran to Russia and Europe.

Construction of an alternate road through southern Armenia, away from the border with Azerbaijan, in July 2021.

Iran is scheduled to participate in the completion of the Tatev road in Armenia which is supposed to be an alternative for the Goris-Kapan road to connect Iran to Russia and Europe.

Kheirollah Khademi, the managing director of an Iranian road construction company has gone to Yerevan on Monday to inspect the project.

Khademi, who is also Deputy Minister of Road and Urban Development, went to the Armenian capital at the head of a technical and engineering committee to consider the way Iran can participate in the completion project of the road.    

Baku claims that some 20 kilometers of the 400km-long Goris-Kapan road from Iran’s Norduz border crossing to Yerevan is part of Azerbaijan’s soil.

The country has imposed strict regulations on Iranian trucks on their way to the Armenian capital over the past one month and a half, forcing them to pay $130 tolls.

With the completion of Tatev road, only less than 15 km of which is incomplete, Iran will connect Armenia without having to enter the Republic of Azerbaijan and from there will be connected to Russia and Europe.

Armenia Deputy PM, Suren Papikiyan, in his previous meeting with Ambassador of Iran to Armenia, Abbas Badakhshan Zohouri, highly appreciated Iran’s stance for establishing stability and peace in the region. He also called Armenian-Iranian relations strategically important.
