Bypassing Russia: Iran is preparing to launch a transport corridor to the Black Sea


With the recent blockage of the Suez Canal by the container ship Ever Given, regional countries are considering safer alternatives to this international trade route. One of these "bypass routes" could be the transport corridor from the Persian Gulf to the Black Sea, the idea of ​​which was expressed by Iran back in 2016.


This route will be launched in the near future, as reported by the representative of the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development of the Islamic Republic of the Islamic Republic, according to the Mehr agency. Director General for Transit of the department Amin Tarafo noted that the transit corridor in the Black Sea region will be created for the development of diplomatic relations between the participating countries and for them to obtain logistical advantages.

According to the official, this trade route will activate the ties of the countries of the region with Europe, as well as increase the role of the Black Sea, Iran and the Caucasus in global transport. At the same time, it turns out that the corridor from the Persian Gulf will not affect Russia. However, Moscow hopes to implement its own transit projects. One of them may be the Northern Sea Route, which every year becomes more and more popular with companies engaged in trade between Asian and European countries.

On Monday, April 19, another round of negotiations was held on the functioning of the transport route from the Persian Gulf to the Black Sea between representatives of Greece, Iran, Armenia, Georgia and Bulgaria. At the same time, the possibility of joining the project and other countries interested in cooperation was emphasized.

    Iran has a transport corridor. So far through Volgodon. The article is nonsense. Georgia is a satellite of America.

    Life does not teach the Persians anything. Are the Europeans happy with the nuclear deal? Is the trade booming?
    I wonder if the Americans, Georgians and Bulgarians, will ban everything at once, or will they wait until Iran invests in infrastructure? Yes, and Pashinyan still wags his "hips". Greeks will be bored indefinitely on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, waiting for Persian goods. And we will wait and see how they eat the cactus, while there are plenty of other projects without it.

        Thank you, I've already been there. Re-read the article, it is written there - through Armenia and Georgia. If you mean exactly by water, then not how, except perhaps by the traditional way, around through the Bosphorus. But the article talks about the transport route, not the waterway. hi

    Well, why not? Containers will be brought from China to Bandar Abbas, loaded onto trucks, delivered by mountain roads to Turkish Samsun. From there, ferries systematically run to Novorossiysk, will make flights to Burgas or Constanta. Fine. For those who did not work with Iran and China ...

        So you wrote it?

        The article directly emphasizes everywhere - bypassing, will not affect, and so on.

        Both the Gulf and Iran do not border on the Russian Federation, not "bypassing", well, in any way.

          No, not me. This is news, they go without a signature. The news is writing.
          All articles are signed by their authors. I'm just for justice.

    It is indicative how everyone is eager to get a free profit from Chinese initiatives - they offer their services to a fight, instead of developing their own economy.
    They do not understand, they voluntarily climb into a mousetrap, because all potential transport corridors will pull with them issues of ownership and management, technical standardization and many others.
    Therefore, everywhere and always, the PRC will determine their fate through the choice of this or that route and have a decisive voice in all issues - from ensuring economic and political security to technical support and property rights.

    Judging by the article, Russia is hostile to Iran. The only thing that is not contained here is the advice to conduct a route from Iran to Europe through the United States. It will be very good.

    About ten years ago, the Chinese made a whole fan of Silk Road corridors, and through the Arab countries, and through Central Asia, Turkey, South Caucasian economic lions, they even started railway trains, and things are still there. Reality has shown that the more countries a cargo passes through, especially through the poor and small, the less profitable the route becomes. And the opposite was assumed, that the participants would add trade turnover. Also in this case, Iran can export its few goods through the Caucasus, but transit from India or China will not go along this route, it is unprofitable and not convenient.
