Kazakhstan launched Trans-Caspian corridor bypassing Russia


KTZ Express JSC, a subsidiary of Kazakhstan Railways (Kazakhstan Temir Zholy, KTZ), launched a container train from Chinese Xian (Shaanxi Province) to Turkish Izmit, located on the northern coast of the Sea of ​​Marmara. This was reported by the press service of KTZ.


On April 15, 2020, the indicated train carrying 41 40-foot standard container departed from Xi'an. It must cover a distance of 6,7 thousand km in 16 days. Its route from China to Turkey passes through Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Georgia along the Trans-Caspian corridor, bypassing Russia.

It is clarified that the composition of the border with Kazakhstan will cross in Altinkol. Then he will head to the Caspian Sea, having traveled all over Kazakhstan. From the port of Aktau on board the cargo will be forwarded through the Caspian Sea to Baku. Then, by the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway, the cargo will go to Turkey.

At the same time, the head of KTZ Express JSC, Dmitry Abdullayev, said that this route will provide exporters of Kazakhstan with the opportunity to deliver their products to Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey, as well as to the ports of the Black and Mediterranean Seas.

We remind you that the implementation of the Trans-Caspian international transport corridor connecting China and Europe bypassing Russia began in 2013. Beijing is trying to diversify its traffic flows so as not to depend on Moscow.

      And it’s not too early to draw dubious global conclusions based on the controversial information about the test run of the only China-Europe container train along the corridor through 4 countries with unstable position, unqualified personnel, and also the ferry service ...? It seems to me that the esteemed global predictor also made tragic comic forecasts when sending a similar train from Ukraine to China in January 2016 with a gastronomic connoisseur of ties known among talkers, and more than 4 years have passed. Where is the result?

    - Is China going to such costs ??? -Only on sled dogs this cargo will not be delivered ...
    - This is how it is necessary to hate Russia so that even such a greedy entity ... as China, could go to such expenses as to only weaken Russia's influence ...
    - Well, but from the “Bakhtiyar” ... “states” ...- what demand .. - they are always ready to annoy Russia (and put a pig in Russia ...- even despite Muslim bans on pork ... -Hahah) - so everything is natural and not surprising ... - But they will whistle ... they will fly in this "partnership" with China ... like plywood over Paris ... - China will not stand on ceremony with them ...- but just three He will remove the skins from them ...- and there will be no one to complain ... - This is not a compassionate Russia that is ready to help, help out, save, etc. ... - Well, let them have ...- what they have ...- that they deserve ... - And do not mind them with Sem ...

      Do you consider the fact that Russian Railways is not able to provide cargo flow over the next 50 years? Since the capitalist considers how much investment went into the Russian Railways, they did not change the paperwork, but specifically the rails, etc.

        - This is exactly the moment when the concept of "Capitalism - and nothing personal" - is absolutely unsuitable ... - Because China pursues a deliberate suffocating policy towards Russia and - for this it uses absolutely all methods ... - It uses the "Bakhtiyar" limitrophs who are ready to betray Russia at any moment ... - This is one ...
        -And the second is that Russian Railways can provide any cargo flow through the territory of Russia (with the replacement of tracks, rails, sleepers, semaphores, etc. ...), but recently such tasks have not been set ... - According to that the reason that Russia has not set itself the goal of raising the industrial and economic potential of Russia at all for 30 years (Russian Railways is still not in the worst position) ...
        - And thirdly, everything that Russia has to do with allegedly “economic”, “trade” and other “Russian-Chinese cooperation” should be immediately reviewed, and much more ... terminated ...
        - What is unlikely under the current Russian government ...
        - But, this is a completely different story ... - I will not bore you with a long story ...- I can only say one thing ...- China today for Russia is inherently the main and very dangerous enemy that seeks to destroy and destroy Russia ... - And it’s even good that the mentioned railway route does not go through the territory of Russia ... - Naive limitrophs hope to get rich on this ... - But everyone who contacted China always later bitterly regretted this, because fell into a deplorable situation ... - And all the Asian states neighboring China ... - are very wary and far from friendly to China than Russia ...

          - they are very wary and far from friendly towards China than Russia.

          The fact is that an even more profitable route - China-Kazakhstan-Turkmenistan-Iran-Turkey - is very unkempt for the Americans.
          And for deliveries to the Mediterranean, the route through Kazakhstan-Georgia is still more profitable than Ukraine, Romania, Greece plus Russia.

            - Personally, I ... clearly and clearly wrote that ... what ... what:

            This is exactly the moment when the concept of “Capitalism - and nothing personal" - is absolutely unsuitable ...

            - Here - the personal is persecuted ... the personal is persecuted ... and not the commercial ... - "personal-Chinese" ... - But the Americans are not at all involved here ... - Or rather, now, after the launch of this railways have become “out of business” ... - China has secured political interests at a loss to its commercial interests ... - And even more so ...- Now China can even influence Georgia ... - buy up its wines, fruits, crops, etc. (and then, in the “case of what” - even reselling all this to Russia or paying off all this to Russia with barter) ... Georgia will simply fall at Ki's feet melting like faraway Serbia, forgetting about the Americans ...
            - And after some time ...- China will lay a new railway to Persia (after all, it now has big business in Iran), and there, anywhere ...
            - And with what does Russia remain ??? - Only with "site pseudo-patriots" ...- and nothing more ... - Gorky -Hahah ...

              Yes, for this, the Georgians will lick the Chinese loin more thoroughly than Uncle Sam. Who now will buy the famous Minassali, except for the Chinese?

      And who told you that China is spending huge expenses, maybe it’s even cheaper for him. Here, as I understand it, the goal of this project is to establish the next supply chain. NOT AGAINST anyone, but for your own benefit. And about the “compassionate Russia, remind me when Kazakhstan asked you to help? Kazakhstan has always been a self-sufficient state, ready, by the way, to always come to the aid of its northern friend. And such as you, pseudo-patriots of Russia, who bring a disservice to your homeland with such statements trying to make a mess in the relationship between an adequate relationship.Do not behave like a grandmother in the yard, hissing at young girls passing by and returning home from the library late and calling them one bad word, exhausted from bile and.

    Well, everyone is looking for their own benefit. In the place of China, Russia would do the same. This transport route is beneficial for China. That is, the PRC should be everywhere and should not be of special benefit to others. Just see what happens next with Kazakhstan and China here. But at the same time many countries are covered in this way.

      We would realize our goals. And we look at others. Coronavirus has shown the failure of our country in all areas. We are skidding. The country flounders aimlessly. There is no Sense of existence, a big Idea and a mobproject, as it is fashionable to say.

        But to live calmly, eat tasty, sleep soundly in the warmth - not for ideological losers. That - in a thrill to suffer from satiety, calm, warmth. I want in the face well, at least to give someone, get an answer, and whine on the whole Internet about the bloody Putin.

    If Kazakhstan begins to seriously harm the Russian Federation, the flow of arms at domestic prices will quickly dry up for it, after which this relatively poor country will quickly slide to the level of the army of Kyrgyzstan ...

      1. If the Russian Federation does not stop annexing all kinds of Crimean peninsulas or other territories there, then the West promised sanctions. Sanctions announced. Nothing. They only got stronger.
      2. What is the if? Do you write on behalf of the government of the Russian Federation or the guarantor of the constitution of the Russian Federation? Is this a threat from a couch expert who does not understand the real economic situation of countries?
      3. In your opinion, the entire economy of the Republic of Kazakhstan is working on the purchase of weapons for its armies. According to the doctrine of Kazakhstan, at least 1 percent of GDP should be spent on the defense capability of the armed forces, and over the course of several years, the budget has been approximately such, including the costs of maintaining vital functions and military operations. And if you still learn that due to the sluggishness of some officials there is a very large percentage of budget undeveloped for the purchase of equipment and weapons, by the way, not only Russian, then, of course, you will be satisfied that the country's economy, called Kazakhstan, will slide to the level of the Kyrgyz army republics.

    Georgia is an American colony and it is not a fact that their railway will withstand the full burden of these trains on Georgian soil.

    It was always amusing that Russia was being pulled everywhere. Have the authors looked at the map for a long time? Putting a train into Turkey through Russia is the same as making a detour. And so the train goes almost in a straight line.

    You just need to understand that China’s trade war with the United States requires the creation of additional routes for its cargo. Well, it’s clear, no matter how it is perceived, that it is rather strange to transport products from Western China to the east in order to ship them through Russia to the west. It's time to get used to the fact that everything to build on the basis of personal relationships is fraught.

      Why should we bother with China's transport problems, which are in no way related to our national projects and benefits? Or are the leftovers from the Chinese table haunting lovers of free halva? )))
