Iran Highlights Strategic Position for China-Europe Goods Transit at "Road to Tian Shan" Summit

In a recent international summit "Road to Tian Shan" in Tajikistan, Iran's Deputy Minister of Roads and Urban Development, Seyyed Kamal Hadianfar, underscored Iran's pivotal role in facilitating the transit of goods between China and Europe.

Iran (IMNA) - Attending the event at the invitation of the Ministry of Transport of Tajikistan, Hadianfar emphasized the significance of the transportation corridors connecting China, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, and Turkey to Europe.
Iran's geographical advantages within the North-South and East-West corridors were highlighted for efficient transportation. Iran's extensive transportation infrastructure, including over 14,000 kilometers of railways and 250,000 kilometers of roads, coupled with agreements like the Chabahar contract with India, enhance its importance in international transportation.

The Deputy Minister discussed Iran's role in developing transportation in landlocked regional countries, emphasizing a 59% growth in transit reaching 14.5 million tons last year. Iran is providing facilities to landlocked countries in the region, particularly Central Asia, to access international waters, fostering increased trade volumes.

Initiatives such as signing MOUs with countries like Tajikistan to leverage Chabahar port's logistics capacities and engaging in negotiations with other nations are part of Iran's strategic agenda. The "Road to Tian Shan" summit aims to foster collaboration and cooperation in the Tian Shan region, focusing on economic development, infrastructure, and cultural exchange.

Representatives from China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Turkey, India, and international organizations like Trasica and Shanghai participated in this year's summit on 29-30 May. Iran's active participation and strategic positioning underscore its commitment to enhancing regional connectivity and promoting international trade through efficient transit routes between China and Europe.
