Until recently, various test journeys were carried out, but the transit line was not regularized with pending infrastructure development.

  • ISB KAHA SE A GAYA AB?
    YE IRAN SE THERAN SE TURKEY JAYEGA

    • Wahab Sahib,
      There is no train or railway line in Afghanistan!
      So it has to proceed as per current route.

  • mean its not for islamabad why but its a very good decision i think if turkey provide jobs to pakistani people and provide route its a very best decision in my opinion

    • There was a agreement between three countries long ago known as RCD. Train service was started during Ayub tenure. I think this will be part of BRT or extention of CPEC.

  • @abdul wahab İstanbul – tehran – islamabad are three capitals. It does not mean that train should route through these cities.

  • Agreement ka Afghanistan se koi talluq nhe phir uska zikar Q ho Raha hy,….
    I think it’s
    Islamabad -> Sukkar -> Quetta -> Taftan -> Tehran -> Istambol

  • this project is for cargo services right now, rout will be Islamabad ( Pakistan) – Tehran ( Iran) – Istanbul ( Turkey).
    Islamabad -Quetta -Taftan – Pakistan.

  • Mashallah very nice. It’s best to our economic and relieve to the journey for Zayaraat and also trade
