Tajikistan-Afghanistan-Turkmenistan railway route to be finalized in 2015

DUSHANBE, Jan. 26 (Xinhua) -- The route of the railway connecting Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan will be finalized in 2015 after Tajikistan reaches an agreement with Turkmenistan, Tajik Transport Minister Hayrullo Asozoda said Monday.

The agreement will be followed by a project feasibility study, with the 9 million U.S. dollars fund provided by the Asian Development Bank, said the minister.

A memorandum of understanding on the railway was signed by presidents of the three nations in Ashgabat on March 20, 2013.

The first track of the cross-border railway was laid in July 2013, which is expected to be completed in 2015.
