NEW DELHI, Feb. 14 (Xinhua) -- India has expressed deep interest in participating in building a railway between the Mediterranean and the Red Sea coasts in Israel, reported local media Tuesday.

Indian Urban Development Minister Kamal Nath told Israeli officials in Jerusalem that "once this project is formed and the road map is clear, Indian companies will evaluate their participation", according to Press Trust of India.

The proposed rail link, which was unanimously approved by the Israeli cabinet last week, offers a new Asia-Europe trade route that will compete with the Suez Canal.
