Iraq Tenders Intl Railroad for Investment for Lack of Funds

The Iraqi Transport Ministry is planning to tender a railroad line links Iraq to several Asian countries through Iran for foreign investment for lack of funds.

The 200 km Mundhiriya-Qasr Shirin railway will link Iraq’s Baqouba city to Iran through the Mundhiriya border crossing, and from there to several other Asian countries including India and China.

Spokesman for the state-owned railway company Jawad al-Kharsan told AKnews that

"The company has completed all legal and technical work for the line to tender it for investment by global or local companies… the company is not able to carry out the project by itself for lack of funds
