TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Ministers from Iran and Kazakhstan on Tuesday signed a number of agreements on mutual trade and diplomatic interaction in Astana.
The documents were reportedly in connection with international transportation, a roadmap to the mercantile, industrial and trade cooperation between Iran and Kazakhstan and a 5-year plan on cooperation between foreign ministries of the two countries.
The agreements were signed after a closed-door meeting between Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his Kazakh counterpart Nursultan Nazarbayev at Kazakhstan’s presidential palace.
The two presidents also exchanged views on the most important issues of mutual interest in the political and economic fields, according to the Iranian president's official website.
On Monday, President Rouhani arrived in Astana on the first leg of his Central Asia tour that will take him later to Tajikistan, where he will attend a summit meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).
The SCO is a political, economic and military organization which was founded in 2001 in Shanghai by the leaders of China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.
Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, and Mongolia are observer states of the SCO.
