President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan will also attend to the ceremony, Arslan added.

The BTK Railway project, completes the crucial railway link between Turkey and Azerbaijan, severed due to poor relations with Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh row, by connecting the eastern Turkish province of Kars with the Azeri capital Baku on the Caspian Sea through the Georgian capital Tbilisi.
