Russia and Iran form a new transport corridor, inaccessible to the West


Moscow and Tehran are planning to create a route for the delivery of goods from the eastern part of Europe to Southeast Asia by rail and waterways. The total length of the route will be about 3 thousand km.


As part of the creation of a trade route, year-round communication between the Azov and Caspian Seas is envisaged, as well as railroad deliveries to the Iranian port of Chabahar on the coast of the Gulf of Oman.

The purpose of creating this transport route is to organize a short route for the delivery of goods from Eastern Europe to the Indian Ocean, as well as to strengthen trade andeconomic relations with the dynamically developing countries of the Asia-Pacific region. At the same time, Russia gets the opportunity to diversify export deliveries, thus compensating for the decline in trade with European countries.

Along with this, the new transport corridor will be inaccessible to the intervention of the West, which seeks to control all possible routes for the movement of goods and capital. The subjects of the transcontinental route will receive significant benefits from its development.

In this regard, it is very important to restore the work of the Azov Shipyard and the Mariupol Commercial Sea Port, as Deputy Prime Minister Denis Manturov announced the day before.

    and what about the BAM from Vladik to Asia, does Manturov no longer like the route? Why is it expanding then?

      Have you studied geography? There is the Far East. And then there is the Middle East.

    The idea is excellent, but for its full-fledged work it is necessary to thoroughly reconstruct the Volga-Don Canal. If the project is implemented, Russia can almost directly access the ports of India

      There is one snag: the Don is getting shallower, the Volga is also getting shallower. The Volga-Don channel is not able to provide the planned traffic. I heard from the corner of my ear about plans to build a canal directly from the Black (or Azov) Sea to the Caspian. It's costly and can't be done quickly.

    What cargo? First, the economic part should go - what goods will be exchanged, at what prices. And only then to consider whether it will be profitable to invest in this route.
    The fact that the route will be inaccessible to the West is a weak argument in favor of this route.

      It is also not clear what they will be transporting, from Europe to / from China? So Europe is trying to commit suicide and abandon China.

      Now almost half of the world's GDP is produced in China and the countries of Southeast Asia - there will be cargo transportation.

    North-South Transport Corridor

    In 1999, a group of Indian, Iranian and Russian transport companies signed a general agreement on the export-import transportation of containers along the international transport corridor Sri Lanka - India - Iran - the Caspian Sea - Russia

    The economic part must come first.

      What kind of goods are going to be delivered along this corridor? Do you offer to carry empty containers? You know, I personally can sign 120 general agreements even with companies from Uganda (there is also an Internet there). And I can write big words about strengthening and even about building bridges.
      What goods? In what volumes? Ash!?

        BAM has been unprofitable for decades. Subway lines too. They are just needed, that's all))

          BAM was built for military reasons.
          From the very beginning, it was clear what the metro was built for - to transport people.
          So your comparisons are lame on both legs.
          However, I understand. Benefits are not planned, but "the West will not be available."
          I'm making a simple prediction. No one will deal with this transport corridor for the next five years. For me, this is good. There are a lot of places on the NSR where it is better to invest money and human resources.
          And you dream, gentlemen, dream. Our country has always been "famous" for the Manilovs.

            At one time, when the western routes were blocked, a quarter of all Lend-Lease supplies were delivered through Iran.

            So it is quite realistic and we need to develop this route.

            Cargo - both exports and imports to the countries of the Indian Ocean - Iran itself, India, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia ..

    Suez is packed to capacity. We need another corridor, here you go. And shorter than the Northern Sea Route. Volgo-don is already expanding.

      The fact that Volgodon is being expanded is good.
      As for the shorter Northern Sea Route, it is very doubtful. Because depending on where to lead the goods. If to China, Korea, Japan (or from there), then no shorter. And taking into account the two overloads on the railway and from the railway, the hemorrhoids are still the same.
      Iran does not need this corridor to supply energy resources to Asia. Why does he need a competitor?
      And there is nothing else to trade. That is why nothing has been done since 1999.

      And earlier it made sense to transport goods from Asia to Europe. It's not planned right now. So chit-chat is all that. For the suckers.

    The canal connecting the Caspian Sea and the Indian Ocean will be needed by Russia when the Caspian Sea belongs to Russia and Iran. Through the Volga you can go to the Baltic Sea and north to the White Sea. This channel was relevant in the times of the USSR, now, when Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan are located on the shores of the Caspian Sea, the channel is dangerous for the Russian Federation. Goods were transported from Iran along the Caspian Sea and further along the Volga 1000 years ago, nothing new.

      If we are talking about trade between the Russian Federation and Iran, then the waterway through the Caspian Sea is the cheapest and most reliable.

          Through Azerbaijan, this means transferring the flow of goods under the control of gay priests, but through Armenia, Georgia, Abkhazia, this is another matter.

    it would be better to develop the port infrastructure of the Iranian port with a much smaller railway
