Armenia is in search of financing sources for the construction of
the railway connecting Armenia with Iran. As Armenia’s transport and
communications minister Manuk Vardanian stated, there are negotiations
with Iran and China as well as other international donors and private
investors. During a recent visit to Moscow the Armenian President
Serzh Sarkisian discussed the issue with Russian president Dimitri
Medvedev. First steps have been taken already and the feasibility study
is ready. For Armenia the railway will be significant economically
and strategically. Costs are estimated up to USD 2.5 bln.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
