According to Afghanistan’s presidential press office, Ashraf Ghani is supposed to inaugurate the Turkmenistan-Aqina railway in a trip to Turkmenistan next month.

The Afghan presidential palace assumes the president’s visit to Turkmenistan will be valuable and effective in the expansion of cooperation in economic, energy and transit sectors between the two countries.

Besides opening the railway, the transit agreement will also be signed during Ashraf Ghani’s visit to Turkmenistan.

According to the ministry of commerce and industry, the railway project will start from Turkmenistan and will be connected to Aqina port in Faryab province.

The railway is supposed to reach to Jawzjan, Balkh, Kunduz and Tajikistan provinces, after one year is passed of its inauguration.
