The United Arab Emirates will have a rail link with Saudi Arabia by the end of December 2021, a senior tranport official said on Monday.

"By the end of December 2021 we will have a connection between us and the Saudis," Abdullah Salem Al Kathiri, director general of the Federal Authority for Land and Marine Transport, told a conference in Dubai.

The planned 2,100 km passenger and cargo network connecting the six Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states was pushed back at least three years to 2021.
