TEHRAN - Iran’s Parliament has passed Iran-Afghanistan Rail Cooperation Agreement that allows railway connection between the two neighboring countries.
According to the agreement, the two sides have agreed to provide rail vehicles and services and implement sanitary supervision in accordance with international rules.
The agreement also obliges Tehran and Kabul to treat passengers and goods from the other side the way they treat their own. This applies to free access to destination points, providing space for cargos in terminals, uploading and unloading of cargos, onboarding and offboarding passengers, and using international railroad services.
The Islamic Republic of Iran Railways and Afghanistan Railway Authority are qualified to supervise implementing the agreement.
