The UAE, Saudi Arabia and India are reportedly planning to create a major railway network that is going to interconnect the Middle East to India and the world.
US media reported that the planned railway network is one of the key initiatives of the US in the Middle East. The UAE, Saudi Arabia or India have not confirmed or denied the report.
However, earlier this week, Arab leaders and National Security Advisors met in Saudi Arabia for talks, lending credence to the report.
US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan met with UAE National Security Advisor Sheikh Tahnoon bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Saudi Prime Minister and Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Salman, and India’s National Security Advisor Ajit Doval in Riyadh on Sunday.
According to the White House, the leaders and NSA officials met “in Saudi Arabia to advance their shared vision of a more secure and prosperous Middle East region interconnected with India and the world.”
US news website Axios quoted unnamed sources as saying that the planned railway project would connect Arab countries through a network of railways connected to India via shipping lanes in the region. ICA/Expat Media
