According to the report of the Shinhua agency, a freight train from the port city of Lienyüngang, in the port city of Ciangsu province in eastern China, has passed the Sincan-Kazakhstan border and entered Kazakhstan. It is stated that the train has passed from Kargas city of Sincan to Kazakhstan, while the same city is expected to turn into an international network with highways, railway lines and pipelines.
