The head of Turkish Trabzon port stated that the port is ready to serve cargos sent to and received from Armenia.
If the Turkish government agrees it will be easy to execute cargo transfers of Armenia through the port and both Armenia and Turkey will benefit from this cooperation, Turkish Gunebakis site cites the head of the port.
“Now Armenia performs import and export of goods of about $7.5 billion through Georgia’s Poti port. There is a railway to Poti but it functions with long-lasting breaks. At the same time, Trabzon port offers a number of benefits to Armenian businessmen and is ready to provide the same volumes as Poti port does,” said the head of the port and added that at the moment the port does not function in full capacity.
