The Azerbaijani delegation led by the minister of economy, chairman of the Coordinating Council for Transit Freight, Shahin Mustafayev is visiting Kars, Turkey. The Azerbaijani delegation visited the monument of the National Leader Heydar Aliyev and laid flowers.

Afterwards, at a meeting with the Minister of Transport, Navigation and Communications of Turkey Ahmed Arslan, the sides discussed the possibilities of developing cooperation in all spheres, including in the transport and transit area. It was noted that the number of trucks moving from Turkey to Central Asia and vice versa has increased in transit traffic. The infrastructure (railway, the international sea trade port of Alat, motor roads, etc.) opens wide opportunities for further increasing cargo transportation. The sides stressed the importance of promoting the Trans-Caspian transit and East-West trade corridor.
