Russia's Kommersant newspaper has published a map showing the transportation corridors and railways in the South Caucasus, the opening of which was agreed upon by the leaders of Armenia, Russia and Azerbaijan during a meeting in Moscow on January 11. According to Kommersant's map, Azerbaijan will get a transport corridor and a railway to its enclave Nakhichevan located west of Armenia (see black and orange lines). These links, which go through Armenia's southern Syunik region, will connect Azerbaijan and Turkey. Armenia will be allowed to use that same railway, which goes from Yerevan to Syunik and passes through Nakhichevan (see black line). Thus, the "transportation agreement" signed in Moscow will effectively open Azerbaijan's path to Nakhichevan and Turkey, Russia's path to Turkey and Armenia, and Armenia's path to Russia and Iran.
