Mishustin: Moscow and Ashgabat are discussing the construction of a highway along the Caspian Sea

Russia and Turkmenistan may implement a project to build a highway along the eastern coast of the Caspian Sea, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said.

“We attach particular importance to the formation of international transport routes, and here our position fully coincides with the approaches of our Turkmen colleagues. Together we are working on the development of the international transport corridor “North-South”, we are reaching full capacity. This will open up a wide field of opportunities for business related to the construction infrastructure, service and trade and logistics centers, modernization of seaports”, the Prime Minister said, speaking at the Russian-Turkmen business forum in Ashgabat.

One of the promising joint projects is the construction of a motorway along the eastern coast of the Caspian Sea. “It is necessary to increase the cargo turnover of Russian and Turkmen ports in the Caspian Sea, to expand the supply of railway locomotives, freight and passenger cars”, Mishustin added.
