Tehran (IP) - Iran's Minister of Roads and Urban Development said that the expansion of Iran-Iraq-Syria trilateral cooperation is going on in the field of transportation centered on Iran.

Iran PressIran News: Iran's Minister of Roads and Urban Development, Mohammad Eslami, said on Thursday that one of the goals of the United States and its allies is to prevent the expansion of cooperation and economic exchanges in the region by destroying transportation infrastructure, adding that the expansion of Iran-Iraq-Syria trilateral cooperation is going on in the field of transportation centered on Iran.

Regarding the presence of Iranian companies in Iraq and Syria, Eslami said: "There are negotiations for the presence of Iranian companies in the projects of Iraq and Syria, but the main problem for the projects is financing, guarantees and banking relations between the countries, and as soon as the banking issue is resolved, they will start the executive work.”

Iran's Minister of Roads and Urban Development stated that the United States would spare no effort to harm Iran's interests, adding: "Iran's economic capacity is far beyond the country's geographical capacity, and infrastructure to use this capacity needs to be provided by increasing multilateral interactions."

Iran will expand its international railways via the Khaf-Herat railway to Afghanistan and Turkey, and Emirates as the secondary route.

The 225-km Khaf-Herat railroad project can transfer six million tons of goods and one million passengers a year.

The Khaf-Herat railway operation is an important step in developing the railway network, which can increase Iran's share in the transit of goods between Europe and Asia and strengthen its position in the east-west corridors.
