Tabriz, Nov 6, IRNA – Indian investors, visiting Rabe Rashidi of Innovation and Technology Exhibition (Rinotex), voiced their readiness for undertaking rail projects, especially electrifying Tabriz-Tehran train, said East Azarbaijan deputy governor general for coordinating developmental affairs on Tuesday.
