Negotiations with China for the high-speed train line from Edirne to Ardahan raised questions in mind.
Negotiating with China for such a large investment has caused concern over whether the Chinese, who can fake almost anything, will make our high-speed train original.
The biggest problem is China's insistence to do it piece by piece… Minister Yıldırım said “they are negotiating hard” in the single-line negotiation ..
Transport Minister Binali Yildirim said that they planned a single high-speed train right from Edirne to Kars, and that the project would include lines that would cut it upright, and they took the proposal to build the line together in China.
According to the news in the Akşam newspaper, Yıldırım stated that their priority is the high-speed train and said, “We are meeting with the Chinese to make them jointly. Let's spread the high-speed train lines that cut this line perpendicularly to points such as Trabzon, Adana and Erzincan, let's build them together with the Chinese. You provide the financing ”he said.
Stating that the project is 35 billion dollars, Yıldırım said, “The Chinese are waiting for the detailed projects to become clear. However, they propose to make high-speed train lines piecemeal, not as a whole. We will put more effort on it. ”
