- Russia and Iran have agreed to begin a rail construction project that will fill in a key gap in the railroad path from the Persian Gulf to St. Petersburg, a move that could prove a boon in Moscow’s bid to cope with western sanctions.
- The project, which will involve the construction of a 100-mile railway between two Iranian cities, will form a key component of a broader infrastructure system that aims to connect Russia, Iran, India, and Azerbaijan and present an alternative to the Suez Canal as a trade route, Reuters reported.
- Iran President Ebrahim Raisi hailed the railway project as a key advancement in the growing alliance between Moscow and Tehran as both nations seek to circumvent strict sanctions from western powers.
