“We do not see any risk and have no any fears about loading of the railway,” the Economy Minister declared to Maestro TV.
Giorgi Gakharia has called trade traffic as verification.
“We should take into trade traffic, numbers between Turkey and Azerbaijan, or even between Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan. This is a direct market that this railway will serve and maybe its design capacity – 5 million tons of cargo may not be enough”, – said the minister.
The Minister says that there are already many suggestions regarding the load of the railway line, which is an additional reason for all three parties to finish the works as soon as possible and the railway will be fully operational.
To remind, that Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway line has already been opened, it will be the so-called “Intermediary Section” of the Silk Road and it will serve Chinese-European cargo in the future.
It is noteworthy that it will take some time to launch the railway line fully and it will be ready in about a year. There are some technical difficulties, which, as the minister says, will be eliminated as a trilateral work.
