Iran, Afghanistan to build border bridge to boost trade

11 April 2021

A memorandum of understanding has been signed between Iran and the neighboring Afghanistan for the construction of a border bridge to facilitate trade interactions between the two sides.

A memorandum of understanding has been signed between Iran and the neighboring Afghanistan for the construction of a second bridge connecting Milak and Zaranj counties in Iran’s Sistan-Baluchestan Province to Afghanistan’s Nimruz Province to facilitate trade interactions between the two sides.

“The 320-meter bridge will be built parallel to the other existing bridge and construction will begin by June,” said Hossein Mirshafi, an advisor of the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development.

The official noted that given the expanding volume of trade between the two countries, the construction of a second bridge, which would make commuting of more trucks possible, is necessary.

The bridge will pass over the common river of Hirmand at the Milak border crossing.
