The Iranian parliament confirmed the bill on Afghanistan-Iran railway agreement, according to reports.
The confirmation of the agreement by Iran and Afghanistan was due to the two countries’ good neighborliness and friendly relations so that the capacities of the countries can be used for the exchange of goods and passengers.
Undoubtedly the agreement will have a positive effect on further enhancement of economic relations of countries, IRNA reported, citing Alborz Hosseini, a spokesman to the Iran’s parliament.
Jilani Farhad, spokesman of Herat governor, meanwhile, said that the railroad will soon be able to transport passengers and goods, which bring about sustainable development for both countries.
On 29 October 2020, Khaf-Herat railway was inaugurated and a train transported passengers from Iran to Afghanistan for the first time through railroad.
