CHINA, Pursuing Interest in Strategic Rail Way

China has long been in pursuit of interest in the strategic China-Central Asia railway network, which has been on the agenda for a long time.
It is stated that China has demanded important iron deposits from Kyrgyzstan for the road which is expected to start within a year. Provided that the cost was previously covered, the 47 yearbook was demanded by China's government and the requests of the Kyrgyzstan government on the road's transit route were negatively welcomed. Kyrgyzstan's demand for the richest iron deposits in the country caused the reaction of Kyrgyz side. The Kyrgyz government, which gave a negative answer to this demand, said that the iron beds were never given to China. Some Kyrgyz MPs maintain that Kyrgyzstan is trying to get a share of iron deposits with large reserves, under the pretext of China. In the iron beds China demanded, the deputies said that the cost of the road, the 2, is not more than a billion dollars, but a lot more potential. The length of the controversial railway linking China and Central Asia will be about 270 kilometers (268kilomtre). Kyrgyzstan wants the railway route to be in Kashkar (China) -Torugart (China) -Balik (Kyrgyzstan) -Celalabad (Kyrgyzstan) - Andican (Uzbekistan). With this option, the south and north of Kyrgyzstan will be connected to each other.
According to the information in the relevant circles, in the case of the completion of the China-Kyrgyzstan-Uzbekistan railway, Kyrgyzstan will only earn around $ 260 million per year in transit. The road, which has a strategic importance for the region, is expected to cost around $ 2 billion. Some observers say that the railroad project, which has been on the agenda for many years, could not be implemented due to China's long-term interests. China's former deputy leader Kurmanbek Bakiyev in the way in question about the 47 yearbook had put forward the condition of unilateral operation.
268 tunnels, 48 bridges and 95 stations will take place on the 4-wide road route. 3 thousand 500 people are planned to be employed on the railway route.
