The Istanbul-Tehran-Islamabad (ITI) train would resume operations from next year.

In the 10th edition of the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO), a joint meetup held in Istanbul, authorities revealed that the Istanbul-Tehran-Islamabad (ITI) train would resume operations.

Turkey’s Transport Minister, Adil Karaismailoglu, said:

The trilateral economic bloc – the ITI railway project – will be relaunched next year.

As per reports, the national railways of Turkey, Iran, and Pakistan have mutually agreed to resume regular operations of the ITI container train. Reports further state that all the requirements for the railway triad have been fulfilled.

It should be noted that until recently, authorities carried out various ITI test journeys. However, the transit line was not regularized with the pending infrastructure development. 

The Istanbul-Tehran-Islamabad (ITI) train project is set to resume because of positive diplomatic landscape between the countries.

Positive changes in the diplomatic landscape between the three countries have made it possible for the railway operation to resume. Currently, all three countries have agreed to unified tariffs, a regular timetable, and active promotion of the train’s availability to make sure it is operational as soon as possible.
