Hopefully the construction of a new bridge over the Astarachay River on the border between Azerbaijan and Iran will be completed and put into operation in a short time, Azerbaijani Ambassador to Iran Ali Alizada told Trend.
The ambassador stressed that construction of the mentioned bridge has already begun and is progressing rapidly.
Alizada added that the new bridge will facilitate the movement of both vehicles and people.
The ambassador also said that Azerbaijan-Iran relations, trade and economic relations are developing every year.
“Taking into account the trade congestion on the borders, the governments of both countries have decided to build new bridges.
