“The incident in the Suez Canal will make everyone think about the need to diversify strategic sea routes in the face of increasing volumes of sea traffic,” Interfax quotes him.

According to the diplomat, it is necessary to think about how to ensure effective management of transport risks and develop routes alternative to the Suez Canal, primarily the Northern Sea Route.

He believes that the attractiveness of the Northern Sea Route will grow in the short and long term.

“There is no alternative to this,” he said.
