Mashad, Jan 29, IRNA - The head of Iran-Tajikistan Joint Chamber announced Iran’s joining of Rail Deal for Central Asia.

Mohammad Hussein Roshanak added at the news conference in Mashad on Tuesday that from the beginning of Iran's connection to the Central Asia railway, our carriages were not allowed to travel in these countries, which has recently been pursued by the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, which led to the signing of the deal.

The official went on to say that the chamber has been formed for four months.

'The joint chambers are to organize and pursue economic relations between the two countries to provide the areas of economic development that would often be in the field of trade between the two countries,' he added.
