“Aleppo-Gaziantep High Speed Train Project hazırlanan prepared by Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality has been suspended due to the events in Syria.
Gaziantep Mayor Asim Guzelbey, told reporters, the project will bring the two Islamic countries closer together, but said it is not possible to realize this at the moment. The era of good relations between Turkey and Syria, the region's most important city of explaining the different projects developed between Aleppo and Gaziantep Guzelbey, said:
Birisi One of these was the commencement of train services between Aleppo and Gaziantep within the framework of cooperation between countries. Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality also attempted to implement the 'High Speed Train Project' between the two cities. All well-intentioned work has been suspended due to the situation in which the country has been in civil war for about 2 years. ”
Guzelbey said that they presented the study to the Islamic Development Bank 3 years ago and that the study received great attention at the time.
However, it does not seem possible to implement the project in terms of the current conditions that Güzelbey, said:
“The project was a joint project involving two Islamic countries. The Islamic Development Bank supports such projects. When 3 came back years ago, they said they were ready for anything about this project. However, later in our Transport Minister 'this project as we do in Turkey' he said. Currently the job is suspended. The money's ready when we want it. But not right now. At that moment we started feasibility studies. Unfortunately, such a project is currently unlikely in Syria. The project would bring the two Islamic countries closer. The distance between Gaziantep and Aleppo would be reduced to an hour. You were supposed to go out and have lunch, come back. That would make such a big contribution. ”
