ZUBR container block-train could reach China via Azerbaijan

Latvia is interested in extending the ZUBR container block-train route through Ukraine to Azerbaijan and then to China, said Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics in a briefing after negotiations with his Azerbaijani counterpart Elmar Mammadyarov in Baku Feb. 13 (Trend Agency).

The discussion highlighted the issue of attracting cargo deliveries from Azerbaijan by the ZUBR container train connecting transport hubs in the Baltic, Black and Caspian Sea regions.

The ministers agreed that the successful positioning of ZUBR depends on a competitive offer of tariffs and, therefore, it is essential to promote dialogue between the responsible public institutions and the private sector.
