Plans For India-Russia Corridor via Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Iran and Oman?



Are Delhi and Moscow planning an extensive India-Russia Corridor? India is partnering Russia to build connectivity networks and related infrastructure in the Indo-Pacific region that will run parallel to China’s ambitious Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The India-Russia Corridor project is anticipated to connect Russia with India via Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Iran and Oman.

Moscow will launch talks with Delhi for the building a corridor connecting Russia-Kazakhstan-Turkmenistan-Iran-Oman-India, according to the Indian media.

The proposal of the India-Russia corridor will be discussed at the upcoming annual summit. India-Russia corridor will complement the International North-South Transport Corridor, Ashgabat Agreement and India’s cooperation in Iran’s Chabahar Port. The issue could also be discussed at the Indo-Uzbek Summit in the backdrop of a mega transport conference that was held in Tashkent recently.

Various matters were discussed in the Tashkent conference including the transit potential of Central Asian nations, new corridors in the region, the creation of a network of customs warehouses, creation of modern conditions and development of customs and border methods for international freight transport, the introduction of information technologies and marketing and digital services were discussed.

India is keen on the promotion of non-BRI corridors in the Eurasian region and it is the only nation which did not support the BRI in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation Summit. When foreign minister Sushma Swaraj visits Tajikistan mid-October for an SCO Heads of Governments meeting, she will reemphasise India’s position on connectivity initiatives that do not violate sovereignty and is executed in a transparent manner without financial burden and military motives.
