Azerbaijani companies seek to build Ukrainian roads - Ukraine's Minister of Infrastructure
Azerbaijani companies are ready to participate in tenders for construction of Ukrainian roads, Ukrainian Minister of Infrastructure Volodymyr Omelyan has stated.
"Azerbaijan has a clear desire to achieve a bright embodiment of the Silk Road. We also have an agreement with port operators, who wish to provide their ferries, to use joint logistics across the Black Sea and in the Caspian Sea. Now the key issue is establishing transparent cooperation, a formation of competitive prices, and a schedule of trains and ferries," he said at a briefing in Kyiv.
