"Pirinkayalar tunnel with a length of 2 246 meters that will connect the Uzundere region of the Erzurum province with the Artvin city will also ease relations directed at the Caucasus," said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the inauguration of the Pirinkayalar highway tunnel that will connect Turkey and the Caucasus countries, APA's local bureau reports.

Note that a new tunnel called the "road of death" among the people will be an important pass in the route from Turkey to the Georgian border and will ease the freight traffic in the mountainous regions of Northeast Anatolia.

The new tunnel that was opened in the direction of the South Caucasus is expected to contribute to the tourism development in this region of Turkey.
