Iran and Pakistan discussed ways to increase transactions between Tehran and Islamabad and stressed the necessity of raising the level of trade between the two countries.
The issues were addressed in a meeting between Iranian Minister of Industry, Mine and Trade Reza Rahmani and Pakistani Ambassador to Iran Riffat Masood in Tehran on Wednesday, IRNA reported.
Commenting on Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s trip to Iran in May, Rahmani said in that visit, the two sides expressed interest in using each other’s trade and economic opportunities more effectively.
Rahmani added that creating border markets and identifying and resolving problems besetting the two sides’ traders and businessmen are among the solutions to increase trade transactions between Iran and Pakistan.
He noted, “Soon, I will visit Pakistan to implement the agreements signed between the two sides.”
The two countries’ willingness to expand constructive cooperation is an important point, the Iranian minister said, adding that more favorable results are expected to be produced in this regard given the measures both sides have taken so far and the greater participation of their private sectors.
