Administrations of railways of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Iran held trilateral talks

Consultations between the railway departments of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Iran were held in the format of a video conference. Railway experts discussed a number of topical issues of cooperation. One of the key subjects of discussion was the progress of implementation of the protocol of negotiations between the heads of the Turkmen, Uzbek and Iranian railway administrations held a year ago.

The railways of the three countries have reached a mutual understanding on the reduction of crossing procedures for freight trains. The decision is aimed at increasing the volume of freight traffic between the three countries.

Another important issue of the discussion was the details of preparation of a test train along the transport corridor connecting the territories of Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, and Oman as part of the implementation of the Ashgabat agreement.

There were also meetings of railroad administrations in a bilateral format: Turkmenistan-Uzbekistan, Iran-Uzbekistan.

Recall that the presidents of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan during last week's official visit of Shavkat Mirziyoyev to Ashgabat, expressed their mutual intention to further support the implementation of the Ashgabat agreement on the creation of an international transport and transit corridor.
