“The creation of this corridor opens up the opportunity for Armenia to directly enter the market of Russia,” the analyst said.

Baghirov also noted that this corridor can serve as an alternative route for Turkey and the Middle East.

“Zangezur corridor will improve trade and tourism relations between Turkey, Azerbaijan and Central Asian countries,” he said.
