 Russia plans to launch coal supplies to Iran in 2024

In June-July 2024, the Russian Federation plans to launch supplies of coking coal from Kemerovo to Iran by rail through Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan.

Director General of the Caspian International Integration Club “North-South” Dmitry Dubovik spoke about this at a press conference following the meeting of the Caspian International Integration Club “North-South” within the framework of the completed XV International Economic Forum “Russia – Islamic World: KazanForum”.

According to him, meetings on this issue have already been held, everything has been agreed on railway logistics. Potash fertilizers are already being supplied to Iran.

“Today, Russia is the driver that launches tools in Iran and India. This is the main direction today: Russia – Iran – India. Naturally, our raw material base, which classically worked for European markets, is almost completely stopped today. And in the new direction, which is now strategic, Russia occupies a worthy position. As an example, in 2025-2027 in India, up to 80% of the coal used will be from Russia,” he said.

Director General of EurAsia South Corridor Development Group LLC Bahram Bahramsiri said that part of the cargo must be transported by rail, and part by water and land routes. He believes that investment agencies and funds should get involved in this issue.

Director of the Business Development Department of Alliance Multimodal LLC, a subsidiary of Alliance Logistics, Emin Kerimov, said that for Azerbaijan, as a developing country, the North-South corridor is important.

The representative of the all-Russian public organization of small and medium-sized businesses “Support of Russia” in Kyrgyzstan, Konstantin Kutsenko, said that Kyrgyzstan has now become a big logistics partner at the international level. He noted that the country serves as a kind of bridge connecting several additional arteries across China.

“Logistics today does not stand still, it moves forward,” Kutsenko said, noting that there are already reliable transportation operators and carriers. He believes that if you concentrate on specific goals and objectives, you can achieve the development of trade turnover and relations between Russia and Kyrgyzstan.
