Prime Minister Imran Khan is all set to sign a letter, which is already signed by the presidents of Afghanistan and Uzbekistan, seeking $4.8 billion loan from the World Bank for a railway line project connecting Pakistan with Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and the Central Asian Republics.

According to Pakistan Railways’ officials, the premier will sign the letter during the visit of the deputy prime minister of Uzbekistan in the next week, saying once the “Joint Appeal Letter” is signed, it will be sent to the president of World Bank for final approval.

The premier took the decision to sign the letter after Federal Minister for Railways Azam Khan Swati and PM’s Adviser on Trade Abdul Razak Dawood called on him on Wednesday and discussed about boosting trade and economic relations among the three countries and the region through rail network.
