08 Jul 2020 The Killid Group

The track-laying operation for the railroad connecting the southeastern port city of Chabahar to the eastern city of Zahedan near the border with Afghanistan launched on Tuesday (July 7), in a ceremony attended by Iranian Minister of Roads and Urban Development Mohammad Eslami. With the new railroad track in place, 927,000 passengers and 2.8 million tons of cargo will be transported annually by the year ending March 2023, as per media reports. Afghanistan, India and Iran signed on May 2016 a deal to develop the strategic port of Chabahar and agreed on a three-nation pact to build a transport-and-trade corridor through Afghanistan that could help halve the time and cost of doing business with Central Asia and Europe.
