Afghanistan, Turkmenistan discuss possible transit-transport corridor

Afghan delegation headed by the Director-General of Economic Cooperation department of the Afghanistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Wahidullah Waisi, met with Turkmen Foreign Ministry in Asghabat to discuss areas of economic cooperation between the two nations.

The parties conferred on a possible creation of Afghanistan-Turkmenistan-Azerbaijan-Georgia transit-transport corridor.

Turkmen President Gurbanguly emphasized on regional economic integration through the implementation of regional infrastructural projects in Afghanistan.

Earlier this month, an operational agreement was signed on Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline projects in Ashghabat.

The 700km pipeline will deliver up to 33 billion cubic meters of gas annually with Afghanistan receiving 16% of the gas and Pakistan and India receiving about 42% of the gas each.

The pipeline will bring USD 450mn in revenue to Afghanistan and generate employment opportunities for thousands of youth.

Starting from Dawlatabad area of Turkmenistan, the pipeline crosses Farah, Herat, Kandahar and Helmand provinces of Afghanistan and reaching India through Pakistan.
