Iran’s Rasht-Qazvin railway will be commissioned next week, IRNA cited governor of the Gilan Province of Iran Mostafa Salari as saying.

He said that the chairman of the Iranian Plan and Budget Organization, as well as the officials of the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development will attend the commissioning ceremony.

Two months later, the president will attend the official commissioning ceremony of the Rasht-Qazvin railway, he added.
