A representative of the press service of Russia’s Novorossiysk Commercial Sea Port (NCSP) told TASS on Wednesday that a direct line between Russia’s Novorossiysk and Syria’s port of Latakia will be open for sea freight. 

“An agreement has been made on transportation of export and import containers between Novorossiysk and Latakia. The link is being formed,” the press service said.

The plan is to supply imported perishable goods to Novorossiysk and export “equipment and breakbulk cargo” through the Syrian port, TASS reported.
