EAEU PMs highlight Europe-China transport corridor - Eurasian Economic Commission head

MINSK. June 21 (Interfax) - The creation of international transport corridors, including the one between Europe and Western China, was high on the agenda of the prime ministers from Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) member states who gathered in Minsk on Tuesday, Eurasian Economic Commission Board head Mikhail Myasnikovich said.

"Decisions have been made to boost the development of transport infrastructure, including Eurasian transport corridors and routes. For instance, it has been proposed to build a southern railroad and to renovate Route M-1 in order to develop the Europe - Western China highway with an extension to Belarus," Myasnikovich said.

It has also been proposed to build a Europe - Western China railroad and a railroad between China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, Myasnikovich said. "The governments of Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, which is an EAEU observer state, are actively working on that," he said.

Hence, a Europe - Western China international transport corridor will be built, Myasnikovich said.
