A total of 180,000 trucks are commuting between Iran and Azerbaijan, which is a sign of high trade exchange between the two nations.
This was stated by Iran's Minister of Roads and Urban Development Abbas Akhoundi said during his visit to the Parsabad border town in Iran's northwestern Ardabil province, AzerNews reports citing ILNA news agency.
“Annually, nearly 180,000 trucks commute between Iran and Azerbaijan,” he said.
Elsewhere in his remarks, he noted that “fortunately, the Astara-Astara bridge has been constructed and a railroad to connect Iran’s northwestern city of Astara to a namesake Azerbaijani city has come on stream.”
“The two countries' bilateral ties are at a good level,” the minister stressed.
