The construction of railways in the liberated (from Armenian occupation) territories of Azerbaijan continues at an accelerated pace in the directions of Horadiz – Nakhchivan, Shusha, and Aghdam, Chairman of Azerbaijan Railways CJSC Javid Gurbanov told journalists on Friday.

Gurbanov said that a 20-kilometer section has been prepared for the construction of a railway in the direction of Agdam.

He noted that mines complicate the creation of railway infrastructure.

“Mines were found during the construction of the railway. Fortunately, they did not explode,” Gurbanov added.
