Iraq: Transport Ministry plans $70bn national rail network
Deputy transport minister Bangin Rekani told AKnews that the project has been submitted to the council of ministers as part of a scheme to connect Iraq with neighbouring countries, develop internal transportation and boost the economy.
The ministry has insufficient funds to implement the project, and therefore is awaiting the approval of the council of ministers to dedicate extra funds.
