Official Urges Completion of Iran-Turkmenistan Transit Road

TEHRAN (FNA)- Managing-Director of Sarakhs Special Economic Zone Hossein Alipour underlined the need for the completion of a transit road linking Iran and Turkmenistan, stressing that the route would bring economic prosperity to the region.



Alipour said that the 14.6 km-long transit road would be gate for the two neighboring countries' trade exchanges, and pointed out that there has just remained 3.2km of road construction before this goal can be materialized.

Reminding that the road needs $20 mln of budgeting for completion, the official stated, "The road will be completed and brought into operation if the necessary credits for the completion of the construction phase are allocated."

Alipour underlined that once completed, the road would bring an economic evolution to the region.

Iran has recently enhanced efforts to boost political, economic and cultural ties and cooperation with the regional and neighboring countries, specially those in the Central Asia.

In line with the same policy, President Ahmadinejad visited Turkmenistan and inaugurated different economic projects in the Central Asian country in January 2010.
