As many as 300 million euros have been allocated from Iran’s National Monetary Fund for the implementation of the Chabahar-Zahedan railway project in Iran’s Sistan and Baluchestan province, said governor of Sistan and Baluchestan province Ahmad-Ali Mohebati, Trend reports citing IRNA.
He said that the allocation of these funds will accelerate the improvement of the railway.
