Iran, Iraq Rail Link Underway

ERBIL – Iranian investors will execute the project of the railway between Basra and Shalamcheh, the Iranian Deputy Minister of Road and Urban Development, Khairollah Khademi, said on Monday.

Khademi pointed out in a statement that the project of the railway between Iraq and Iran
will lead to a strategic change for Tehran in terms of transit and railway linking.

It will link Iran with the Syrian ports and the Mediterranean and that it would establish an East-West road in the country, he added.

“The project allows transporting fright from Pakistan or the Iranian Chabahar Port, or the goods arriving from China or Central Asia to Sarakhs and the Syrian ports and the Mediterranean through the Iraqi railways.”
