INDIA'S AMBASSADOR TO ARMENIA: INDIA IS INTERESTED IN TRANSIT OF ITS
GOODS THROUGH TERRITORY OF ARMENIA


YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 26. ARMINFO. The international transport corridor
"North-South" is very important for Armenia, Ambassador of India to
Armenia Dipak Vohra told journalists. He stressed the necessity of
activation of movement of goods through the corridor, as the transit
India-Iran-Armenia-Russia-Europe costs cheaper than the sea way from
India to Russia or Europe. "India is interested in transit of its
goods through the territory of Armenia, where the roads are excellent,
Vohra said. In this connected the Ambassador stressed the necessity of
investment in road infrastructures of Iran and Georgia, where unlike
Armenia the roads are of lower quality. The diplomat also stressed the
necessity of using both Armenian and Azerbaijani routes, as India is
interested in presence of alternative ways within the framework of
International Transport Corridor "North-South".
