Ilham Aliyev lays foundation of Horadiz-Aghband railway
President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev laid the foundation of the Horadiz-Aghband railway in Fuzuli district, according to the presidential website.
This 100-kilometer railway is of great strategic importance because this transport infrastructure will play an important part in enabling the movement of Azerbaijani citizens to and from the liberated lands and, most importantly, contribute to the establishment of a direct railway connection between the main part of Azerbaijan and the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic.
"This railway is of great strategic importance. First of all, because it will be of great importance both for the travel of citizens to the liberated lands and for cargo transportation. On the other hand, this railway will extend to Nakhchivan," the statement reads.
