32km Iran–Iraq railway link to be built over next two years

Shafaq News / A memorandum of understanding has been signed between Iran and Iraq for a 32km railway link between the two countries, connecting the Iranian town of Shalamcheh and Iraqi city of Basra.

A statement shared by the Iranian government said a joint venture between the Iraqi Republic Railways Company and the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways was due to be announced in two months.
