Minister: Iran agrees to boost transit tariffs for TRACECA

Qasemi made the remarks in a meeting with Secretary-General of the PS IGC TRACECA Asset Assavbayev.

He said that TRACECA member states have specific capacities and each enjoys its own geopolitical characteristics.

These roles, including in sea and land transportation, can facilitate regional transportation, he added.

The Islamic Republic of Iran, as a member of TRACECA, has its own characteristics in the North-South and East-West corridors, as well as in the maritime sector in the waters of Mazandaran and the southern waters, he noted.

Qasemi went on to say that Iran has no limitation for maintaining cooperation in land and maritime sectors.

He also offered readiness for lifting visa requirements with all TRACECA member states.

Meanwhile, Assavbayev emphasized Iran’s role in TRACECA, saying that the connection between the north and south of Iran and taking advantage of this transit route is very important for the member states.

He hoped for finalizing agreements between Iran and Kazakhstan.

He stressed launching a feeder vessel line in Iran’s northern ports and adjusting transit tariffs from northern to southern ports.

TRACECA is an international transport program involving the European Union and 12 member states of the Eastern European, Caucasus, and Central Asia. The program’s aim is to strengthen economic relations, trade, and transport in the regions of the Black Sea basin, the South Caucasus, and Central Asia.
