In the sidelines of the 12th Conference of Iran-Azerbaijan's Economic Cooperation Joint Commission, Masoud Karbasian said good negotiations have been done so far between two countries to achieve joint agreements, stating appropriate steps have been taken to construct Astars railway corridor to Azerbaijan, citing at the present some wagons are moving on this line daily.

Iranian Minister of Economic Affairs and Finance mentioned that Iran can access the North Caucasus region and the Central Asia through this significant railway, adding some parts of the line which connect the Persian Gulf to the Republic of Azerbaijan and Russia should be completed in Rasht and Astara.
