Senior MP Supports Shamgen Visa Proposal

He also stressed that promotion of touristic and pilgrimage travels and complementary investments in the fields of economy and commerce are among the most potential advantages that would be actualized.

Iran, Turkey, Syria and Iraq have agreed on issuing joint visa, said Iranian deputy Vice President Ali Aghamohammadi.

"As offered by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, tourists can visit the four countries with the joint visa," Aghamohammadi said this week. The measure seeks to lessen tourists' expenses and facilitate tourism in the four countries.

Speaking to ICANA, Falahat-Pisheh lauded the idea as appropriate, adding that its realization would facilitate travel of citizens of those countries. He said the visa regime somehow resembled Schengen visa in Europe.

He stressed that with regard to the economic and commercial geography of the four countries mentioned, lifting the visa formality would promote tourism among them.

He further remarked that today political determination has been created among Tehran, Ankara, Damascus and Baghdad for détente and establishment of trade, as well as consular and diplomatic relations.

Falahat-Pishe stressed that if such a practical and fruitful pact is signed, parliamentary groups in the mentioned countries would exert their utmost efforts for the approval of the treaty.  

The name of "Shamgen" has been proposed by Erdogan. Shamgen is named after "Sham" which is the classical Arabic name of Syria, he added.

Initial steps for realization of the idea between Iran and Syria are in their final stages and the two countries have offered their final acts to be approved in their parliaments.

Iran has taken actions towards Turkey and Iraq as well.
