US Sanctions Will Not Affect Russia-Iran Railway Cooperation – Iran Railways VP

Hossein Ashouri, deputy director of the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways, told Sputnik how the sanctions imposed on Russia and Iran would affect the relations between the countries, as well as the potential of bilateral cooperation in the construction and maintenance of Iran’s railways.

According to Abbas Akhundi, Iran’s minister of roads and urban development, last December, Iran and Russia signed a contract for the production of railcars. Earlier, the Iranian media reported that the United Wagon Company and three Iranian companies had agreed to supply the country with railcars. It was planned that the Iranian companies would produce the cars’ bodies, and the UWC would supply the wheels and braking systems.
