Presidents of Turkmenistan, Afghanistan and Tajikistan signed a trilateral framework agreement on the construction of a railroad in a tripartite meeting in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, where the leaders of Afghanistan and Tajikistan had arrived to participate in the celebration of Nawroz (New Year).

Work on laying the track will begin in July of this year.

Previously, a 75-kilometer rail-line from Afghanistan to Uzbekistan became operational in 2011.

The 400-kilometer rail project will connect the Afghan town of Akina-Andkhoy to Atamurat Ymamnazar in Turkmenistan and Pyandzh in Tajikistan.
