BAKU, April 8 (Xinhua) -- Visiting Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili has hailed the coordinated work that Georgia and Azerbaijan are carrying out together on the Middle Corridor, a trade route that spans the Central Asian steppe, the Caspian Sea and the Caucacus mountains.

"Our goal is to remove all obstacles in the near future, to jointly develop the infrastructure," said Garibashvili Friday, following his meeting with Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev as part of his visit to the northwestern Azerbaijani city of Gabala.

On the ongoing construction of a new port in Georgia, Garibashvili said that in a year, the expansion of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway will end. "We will be able to transport more cargo through the Middle Corridor."

Aliyev highlighted ample opportunities for transporting new goods along the Middle Corridor. "All administrative issues should be resolved, the tariff policy should be resolved ... At the same time, joint efforts should be made to attract and transport cargo," he said.

The two leaders also highlighted their countries' cooperation in the field of green energy.

"We have a huge potential to transport green energy to Europe, which has great prospects. This is the future. Both countries will invest more in this area," said Garibashvili. Enditem
