1st Direct China Freight Train to Iran

A container train linking China and Iran departed from Yiwu City in east China’s Zhejiang Province loaded with Chinese commodities on Thursday morning. According to the train’s operator, Yiwu Tianmeng industry investment company, it is the first regular container train linking China to the Middle East, Xinhua reported. The train will exit China through Alataw Pass in Xinjiang, the westernmost Chinese region, and pass through Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan before reaching its destination Tehran. The company’s president, Feng Xubin, said it will take the train 14 days to complete the 10,399-kilometer journey. Part of the “Belt and Road Initiative”, the train is expected to further promote China’s cooperation with Middle Eastern countries.
