Iran to launch Rasht-Caspian railway in coming days

Iran is set to inaugurate the Rasht-Caspian railway in the north of the country within the next few days, according to the Ministry of Transport and Urban Development.

The railway which is a key part of the strategically significant International North-South Transit Corridor (INSTC), will be launched in a ceremony in the presence of acting president Mohammad Mokhber.
The Rasht-Caspian railway is of special significance as it facilitates Iran’s trade exchanges with regional countries and Europe.

The 37km-long railway will join the Iranian southern ports to the ports in the northern country.
