“I hope we will not live in the next period. After these signal tests are completed, they cannot do these sabotage as soon as the train starts running. If they make an attempt anywhere, we detect it instantly. Because the system is then completely connected to the center. They can detect that location from the center. Therefore, our troubled process is until the high-speed train starts running. After that, we will not have trouble. "
