Ashgabat Deal Promotes Economic Ties

“The Ashgabat five-side agreement offers a promising prospect for economic and transit cooperation as well as a bright future for regional development, welfare and stability,” Salehi said at a meeting with Turkmenistan's Foreign Minister Rashid Meredov on Monday.

He praised relations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Turkmenistan and said Tehran and Ashgabat can expand cooperation in many areas, including anti-drug measures, energy, electricity, railway and power plant construction.

Salehi also called for more cultural, educational and tourism cooperation with Turkmenistan.

Meredov, for his part, said that Iran was Turkmenistan's first trade partner and added that his country was willing to expand ties with Iran in political, economic, cultural, anti-drug campaign, energy, power and tourism sections.

Salehi arrived in the Turkmen capital, Ashgabat, on Sunday to attend a meeting of foreign ministers of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Qatar and Oman on international transportation and goods transit cooperation.

The five foreign ministers on Monday signed an agreement on transportation and the transit of goods via railway, sea and land.

The deal establishes a transit corridor which connects the Persian Gulf and Central Asia and facilitates the transit of goods between regional countries.

“I'm sure this agreement will have favorable and constructive results for regional nations, and will offer the five nations (Iran, Turkmenistan, Oman, Qatar and Uzbekistan) useful and ideal opportunities in launching international transit services,” Salehi said at the Monday meeting.

He also expressed hope that other countries would join in as well.
