High-speed Silk Road in the planning stage

Fars News Agency :: Iran Willing to Join China-Tajikistan-Afghanistan Railway Link: ""The railway which is 392-km long will connect Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and China, and will boost expansion of trade ties, increase exports and decrease transit costs among these countries and will facilitate transport of cargo and passenger in the region," Nikzad underscored.

In addition to the rail link, Iran seeks other links with China and the Central Asia.

In 2010, Iranian First Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi said the country has made major investments in the transportation sector and is resolved to revive the ancient Silk Road. "
