Iran, Iraqi Kurdistan Region to Expand Trade, Economic Ties: Official

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The governor general of Iran’s West Azarbaijan province said that trade and economic relations will be expanded between the province and Iraq’s Kurdistan region.

Speaking in a meeting between the governor generals of Iran’s border provinces and the Iraqi Kurdistan region in Irbil, Mohammad Sadeq Motamedian emphasized the serious resolve of Iran to develop relations with the Iraqi Kurdistan region, adding that the relations between the two sides are 'inseparable'.

The United States and the Zionist regime along with the terrorist groups in the region are against the friendship of the two sides, because it would jeopardize their interests, he added.

The official further noted that the volume of the border trade exchanges with the Iraqi Kurdistan region through the Tamarchin Border Terminal increased by $1 billion last year (ended March 19, 2024), Mehr news agency reported.

The governor of Iraq’s Irbil province also stressed expanding relations with Iran in all areas, especially in the fields of trade and economy.

Omid Khoshnav added that high-ranking Iranian and Iraqi officials have always emphasized the expansion of relations in all fields.
