Turkish Transportation Minister Binali Yildirim and his Syrian
counterpart Yarub Sulayman Badr inaugurated the Cobanbey Railway
"We have come one more step closer to Hejaz railway with
inauguration of this border pass," Yildirim said
The Cobanbey station and 56-kilometer-long Cobanbeyli-Karkamis line
were opened in 1912 on the Hejaz railway route, and has not been
renovated for 100 years.
Minister Yildirim said Turkey and Syria were working to make their
geography more developed, stable and peaceful, to put an end to
bloodshed and tears, and to raise the living standards of their
people and to make them more prosperous.
Yildirim said that Turkey and Syria had raised their trade volume
from 500 million to 1.8 billion USD in ten years, and lifted
obstacles before trade, transportation and investments.
Under the project, Turkey renovated 150-kilometer-long Cobanbey (Kilis)-Gaziantep
The Cobanbey station is the third one following Nusaybin and
Islahiye, opening to the Middle East.
Turkey aims to transport more than 1 million tons of cargo to Syria
and Middle Eastern countries from Southeastern Anatolia provinces
through this route, and to raise its actual export capacity by 125
