False news that the train does not continue its voyage after international trade and routine customs clearance can only be the work of those with different agendas.
Apart from the fact that the general principle of media members having their news verified through different channels has been violated, the fact that some malicious circles in the railway transportation sector serve wrong and misleading information to the members of the press can only be explained with bad faith.
We have made great efforts to use our railways in the most efficient way in freight and passenger transportation and turn them into a competitive advantage in logistics. We have taken innovative and bold steps both in terms of infrastructure and hardware. We rehabilitated the existing lines. We made new lines available to our people. With the YHT project, we met the economic and fast transportation needs of our people.
From Turkey and even from Europe to China via rail can be made without interruption of passenger and freight transport, thanks to our railways we make continuous Anatolia during the Marmaray Project and we have been able to implement. We started a new era in the railroad, so to speak. We did all this with the belief that we are a great country, with confidence in ourselves and the determination to provide the best for our citizens.
Growing, growing, growing Turkey, some circles that can not shoot our detractors will at any time.
Those who complete their work by blackening the great works will exist in every period. We continue on our way with determination. Like all other modes of transport, on railways, WORKS IS ON THE RAIL.
