Iran-Turkey Trade Exchanges Rise to $13.4 Billion: Roads Minister

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s minister of roads and urban development said that the trade exchanges between Iran and Turkey have increased to over $13.4 billion.

Mehrdad Bazrpash made the comments on Monday in his visit to the Embassy of Turkey to Iran and stated that the two countries enjoy high potentials to further enhance bilateral trade.

He seized this opportunity to congratulate the National Day of Turkey to the government and noble nation of the neighboring country.

In his meeting with Turkey’s Ambassador to Iran Hicabi Kırlangıç, Iran’s roads minister said that the administration of President Ebrahim Raisi attaches great importance to its relations with neighbors within the framework of neighborhood policy and the Republic of Turkey has a special position and importance here.

The cooperation of the two great powers of the region, in addition to safeguarding mutual interests of the two countries, can bring about peace, stability, security, development and prosperity in the region, Bazrpash stressed.

Benefiting from many cultural and religious commonalities and located on the historical Silk Road, the two countries have played a leading and effective role in the regional equations, he emphasized.

The head of the Iran-Turkey Joint Economic Cooperation Commission further pointed out that the two countries pursue the development of bilateral relations with strong political determination, adding that the visit of Turkish President Recept Tayyip Erdogan to Iran at the head of a high-ranking trade and economic delegation in August 2022 is solid evidence of the determination of the two countries for strengthening bilateral trade.

Raisi will visit Turkey in the near future to participate in the 8th Meeting of the Iran-Turkey Supreme Council of Cooperation and explore avenues for enhancing mutual ties, Bazrpash added.
