The Turkmen leader said he had secured Iran's consent to jointly build a railway that would link ex-Soviet Central Asia to the Persian Gulf ports, official Turkmen media said Tuesday. Turkmen President Gurbanguli Berdymukhamedov, who visited Tehran last week, said he received Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's support for the "North-South" railway that will cross from Kazakhstan to Turkmenistan and on to Iran's Persian Gulf coast, the official daily Neutral Turkmenistan said. "Our Iranian brothers have agreed to implement this large-scale project," Neutral Turkmenistan quoted Berdymukhamedov as telling his ministers. The newspaper said the railway deal was to be signed during a summit of leaders of Caspian Sea nations in Tehran later this year.
