Turkey studies road near Alican checkpoint bordering Armenia

13:21 – 31.07.10

Turkey is presently studying a short section of a road that will in
all probability be used should the Armenia-Turkey border be opened.
According to CNNTurk experts from Erzurum regional road department
have upon the instruction of Igdir’s Governor arrived at the Alican
checkpoint and are currently exploring the 6km-long road, as well as a
bridge on the border.

The experts will in the near future prepare a report on the works
being done and will submit it to the Igdir province Governor.

Earlier in July some reports said that the Turkish Foreign Ministry
sent a written query to the Kars and Igdir province administrations
asking to respond how much time would be needed to make the road ready
for exploitation should the border be opened.

Ahmet Karan, the Kars governor, had said in response that a month
would be enough to get the road ready for exploitation should
Armenia-Turkey rapprochement be again brought on the agenda.
