Iran and China are enjoying strong bilateral relations, and earlier in September, the two countries launched a 9,000-kilometer-long railway within the framework of new Silk Road Program between the two countries.
The new Iran-China railway used by cargo and service trains connects China's Inner Mongolia to the city of Bam in Southeastern Iran.
During the opening ceremony of the new railway, a cargo train moved from Inner Mongolia logistic and industrial town to the city of Bam. It is estimated to arrive in Bam in 15 days.
The train consists of 41 containers carrying equipment, machineries and car spare parts. The consignment is worth $1.5 million.
