Speaking before the start of provincial working groups at the 15th meeting of Iran-Russia Joint Trade and Economic Cooperation Commission this morning in Tehran, Chebotarev vowed to expand economic cooperation with Iran.
He called for appointing a special representative to pursue the results of current conferences in Iran, noting that such a measure will be a leap in expansion of bilateral ties.
The North Caucasian Federal District is eager to boost economic ties with Iran, he highlighted.
Besides the North Caucasian Federal District, representatives from other Russian districts are also attending the conference which shows the will for more efforts and eagerness to deepen economic relations, he said.
Late on Sunday, Russian Ambassador to Tehran Levan Dzhagaryan said that his country is eager to further boost trade and business ties with Iran, adding that Moscow will ease the procedure for issuing visas for Iranian entrepreneurs, industrialists, businessmen and economic activists.
Addressing the second Conference on Perspective for Business and Cultural Cooperation between Iran and the North Caucasian Federal District of the Russian Federation, underway in Tehran, Dzhagaryan said, “The issuance of visas to economic activists and entrepreneurs will help develop and improve bilateral relationship between Iran and Russia.”
Russia’s trade representative office in Tehran also expressed its readiness to help Iranian traders and businesspersons on relevant issues, he said, adding, “Iranian traders and merchants can take advantage of their experiences and knowhow for the development of activities.”
Presently, establishing trade and business ties between the two countries has been eased in a way that economic activists of the two countries can exchange their views optimally, the ambassador stated.
