Official: New border crossing to facilitate Iran-Afghanistan trade

A new border crossing is due to be established along the Iranian border with Afghanistan to ease trade between the two neighboring countries, an official said.

Deputy Governor General of Khorasan Razavi Province Ali Rasoulian said that Shamtigh border crossing is the place where Khaf-Herat railway is going to pass into Afghanistan, reported Fars News Agency.

“The new border crossing is under study,” Rasoulian said, adding that once inaugurated, it will have many economic advantages for the province.

He said the opening the project will be within the next two months.

“The new railway not only will decrease the transit costs but will help facilitate the commuting of trucks which have to line up at Dogharoon border,” the official said.
