Zarif said on Sunday that Iran is ready to develop and facilitate its relations with Nakhchivan in various fields, including agriculture, railway, road construction and infrastructure projects, energy and customs service, IRNA reported.
He stressed that Iranian and Azerbaijani people feel at home in either of the countries and never feel like foreigners.
In late December 2016, Iran launched a direct passenger train service between its northeastern city of Mashhad and Azerbaijan’s Nakhchivan.
The train from Nakhchivan travels to Iran’s northwestern city of Tabriz through Jolfa and thereon to Tehran and finally Mashhad.
Talibov said on his turn that his county is ready to expand relations with Iran in energy, tourism, and transportation fields.
