China launches its first cargo train to Afghanistan

China launched its first cargo train to Afghanistan on Friday, officials have reported.

The train went from Nantong City, east of China’s Jiangsu Province, to Hairatan, a border town and port in the north of Balkh province of Afghanistan.

It is China’s first cargo train service to Afghanistan and it takes about 15 days passing through Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan before arriving Hairatan.

Two trains are scheduled each month. The new railway route is part of efforts to improve logistics linking nations under the “Belt and Road” initiative.
