An extended railroad construction is underway to connect Iran to the Syrian west coast on the Mediterranean Sea, crossing the Kurdistan Region in northern Iraq, according to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani who visited Kurdish provincial capital of Sanandaj in Iranian Kurdestan late last month as part of his reelection campaign.

Rouhani described the construction of Tehran-Sanandaj railroad as one of “the most important infrastructure projects” in the country and added that it would create many job opportunities, Kurd Net reported.

“By extending the railroad from Sanandaj to the Kurdistan Region in Iraq, we will connect Iran to the Mediterranean Sea through Syria,” the president said after arriving in Sanandaj on March 25.
