Iran and Afghanistan will be connected through the Khaf-Herat railroad next month, according to the minister of roads and urban development.
“The rail route between Iran and Afghanistan has been established with the aim of increasing transit,” Mohammad Eslami was quoted as saying by ILNA.
The Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his Afghan Counterpart Ashraf Ghani are expected to attend the inauguration ceremony.
In a visit to the Afghan western province of Herat earlier this month, Iran's Deputy Roads Minister Abbas Khatibi said 93% of the work on the Iranian segment of the rail project have been completed.
Afghan rail officials in Herat said the Afghan government will start work on the fourth phase of the Khaf-Herat rail project within the next 10 days, TOLOnews reported on Oct. 6.
