Dr.Rouhani made the remarks Wednesday in a ceremony to put the railroad into service in the Turkmen city of Inche Boroun on the Iran-Turkmenistan border where his Kazakh and Turkmen counterparts, Nursultan Nazarbayev and Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow, were also present.
President Rouhani says the railroad connecting Iran to two Central Asian countries of Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan will benefit the whole region.
President described the inauguration ceremony as "memorable and historic".
The railway aims to facilitate transportation for the three countries and the whole region, Dr.Rouhani said.
“Today is a happy day for the countries in the region and all countries that can use the railway,” President Rouhani said, adding that the day ushers in a new beginning for better interaction among regional nations.
President further noted that the railway will make the transportation of commodities among the countries cheaper, and also make economic cooperation between them more profitable.
He also said that the railway has the potential to transport millions of tones of commodities and thousands of passengers annually.
He said the capacity of the newly-inaugurated railway which links Iran with Central Asia should be increased.
The President noted that the railway project gives easier access for Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan to the Persian Gulf, Sea of Oman, China, Turkey, Europe and the Mediterranean.
He said the three countries involved in the project should even take further steps towards completing the project which is of prime importance for regional nations.
