Railway system to link Gulf with Europe by 2018
Regional network in the works, GCC
''The GCC-Europe network may be up and running already in 2018, but this will depend on the decisions made by heads of state in the countries involved,'' Al Muhannadi said.
The rail system around the Islamic holy cities of Medina and Mecca has already been completed.
The entire regional project, in which also Kuwait and Oman are taking part, will be developed along main two lines.
