A project on the construction of a railway to Azerbaijan’s Shusha city is being prepared, Chairman of Azerbaijan Railways CJSC Javid Gurbanov told reporters on Friday.

“The design work is carried out by a Turkish company,” Gurbanov said. “There is a mountainous territory.”

“As known, the president declared Shusha the cultural capital of Azerbaijan, therefore it is important to build a railway in this direction,” he added. “In this regard, an instruction was given. The work is underway.”
