Kazakh Prime Minister Karim Massimov has urged to complete construction of railroad lines ‘Uzen-state border with Turkmenistan’ and ‘Zhetygen-Korgas’ by the 20th anniversary of Kazakhstan’s Independence at the enlarged session of the Kazakhstan Temir Zholy JSC (KTZ) in Astana on Tuesday, January 12.

“It is a very important issue, our trade policy depends on a speed of these lines construction. The road to Turkmenistan is an access to warm seas, and we will have opportunity to export our production through them”, K.Massimov noted.

“I know that the Turkmen part is constructed at a growing rate, and Iran, in my opinion, moves promptly. And we, in our turn, should not be late”, he emphasized.

According to the Head of the Government, China is our export market. We should present the gift by the 20th anniversary of Kazakhstan’s Independence for export in this direction.
