Russian Railways President Vladimir Yakunin and Iranian Ambassador to Russia Mehdi Sanaei discussed prospects for cooperation within the Altai Forum currently underway in Gorno-Altaysk, the south-west of Siberia.
“The work is practically complete. About 40 kilometers of the railway line are to be completed. It is necessary to resume railway service between the two countries as soon as possible,” Sanaei said on Friday.
“There are another four joint projects, particularly Iranian railways’ electrification,” he said.
The meeting focused on issues related to the possibility for developing cooperation between Iran and the Eurasian Economic Union.
