The government started work to complete the Kars-Iğdır-Nakhchivan line and connect it to Iran, and to lower the line to the Strait of Hormuz. Negotiations were also launched with Iraq.
HICAZ WILL BE FOLLOWED
The line in Iraq will be lowered to Saudi Arabia over Jordan and the Hijaz Railway will be revived. Thus, a freight from China or Kazakhstan can be transported via Kars to Saudi Arabia and South Africa. Stating that the contacts with Sudan continue, Transportation Minister Ahmet Arslan said, “The goal is to make the line from Saudi Arabia and Egypt to Sudan and then to South Africa. It is not right to think about it only with Hejaz. To connect with Turkey's European railway network connecting Asia to Africa, he says it would be more accurate. The interest countries are also very interested in this matter. ”
