FM Terms Ties with Neighboring States "Iran's Top Priority"

Speaking on the sidelines of his visit to Sarvi customs office in Iran's Northwestern city of Orumiyeh, Salehi said neighboring countries play an essential role in Iran's economic and commercial transactions and this has been included in Iranian government's planning.

He also voiced satisfaction with the "growing and remarkable" ties among Iran and the neighboring countries of Iraq, Turkey and Azerbaijan over recent years, and said, "The bonds are unbreakable and Iran's economic and commercial transactions with all countries are on the rise."

As for facilities of Iran customs offices, including Sarv customs office, Salehi said major portion of Iran's border exchanges is with Turkey through West Azarbaijan Province.


This gives importance to the role of the province in expansion of bilateral relations with Turkey, he commented.

Iran and Turkey have in recent years increased their cooperation in all the various fields of economy, security, trade, education, energy and culture.

The two sides have exchanged several politico-economic delegations during the last few months.

Turkish President Abdullah Gul in a meeting with Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani earlier in February underlined the need for the removal of obstacles to the further expansion of bilateral economic ties with Iran in a bid to boost trade cooperation between the two countries.

"The level of economic and trade cooperation between the two countries is not appropriate for the age-old ties of the two nations and we should remove the obstacles to the development of mutual cooperation between Iran and Turkey," Gul said at the time.
