Iran News - - WORLD NEWS -

TEHRAN (IRNA) - Pres­i­dent of Trade Pro­mo­tion Or­ga­ni­za­tion of Iran (TPO) Mo­jtaba Khos­row­taj said on Sun­day that the Is­lamic Repub­lic of Iran and Uzbek­istan are de­ter­mined to broaden their eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion.

Fol­low­ing change of Uzbek pres­i­dent and new de­vel­op­ments in the coun­try’s eco­nomic cy­cles, both coun­tries are de­ter­mined to fur­ther broaden and bol­ster eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two sides, he said.

Set­ting up the 12th Iran-Uzbek­istan Joint Com­mis­sion meet­ing pre­pares grounds for the visit of Pres­i­dent Rouhani to Uzbek­istan in which we try to fa­cil­i­tate visa is­suance while broad­en­ing bank­ing co­op­er­a­tion, he said.

The two sides are to sign a num­ber of MoUs on ex­pan­sion of in­dus­trial and min­ing co­op­er­a­tion dur­ing the visit of the Ira­nian pres­i­dent to Uzbek­istan, he said.

Lack of di­rect flights be­tween Tehran-Tashkent is re­garded as an­other hur­dle pre­vent­ing ex­pan­sion of eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two coun­tries and it is ex­pected such di­rect flight to be re­sumed this May, he said.

Tashkent hosted the 11th Iran-Uzbek­istan Joint Eco­nomic Com­mis­sion meet­ing held on Jan­uary 4th, 2015.
