Iran Railways says it has signed a preliminary agreement with the Italian state-owned Ferrovie dello Stato (FS) to build two high-speed links in Iran.
The lines will run between Qom and Arak, and between Tehran and Isfahan.
According to the report from Associated Press, Iran signed an $8 million deal with French company AREP in April 2015 to modernize three train stations in Tehran, Qom and Mashhad.
