By Azad Hasanli - Trend:
Iran intends to build a hospital in Azerbaijan, Iranian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Javad Jahangirzadeh told reporters in Baku Nov. 10.
He said that the hospital will be built on the initiative of the presidents of Azerbaijan and Iran, as well as governor of Tabriz city.
At the same time, the ambassador noted that the groundbreaking ceremony of the joint Azerbaijani-Iranian pharmaceutical plant will be held in two weeks.
“Azerbaijan and Iran have no problems in economic or political spheres,” the ambassador said. “This is also confirmed by the mutual visits of the heads of the two states: Iranian and Azerbaijani presidents have held seven meetings in three years, which is unique for the Caspian region.”
“Both countries plan to implement a number of projects, but this requires time,” he noted. “We hope that joint projects will contribute to the further development of relations between our countries.”
Jahangirzadeh also recalled that Urmia province governor is expected to visit Azerbaijan in the next month, and the country’s Economy Minister Shahin Mustafayev will visit Iran before late 2016.
Baku is hosting the “Investment opportunities of Azerbaijan and Iran” conference. Over a hundred businessmen from the both sides operating in spheres of transport, energy, industry, health care, finance, ICT and tourism are taking part in the event.
The trade turnover between Azerbaijan and Iran amounted to $137.65 million in January-September 2016, more than $102 million of which fell on the import of Iranian goods, according to the State Customs Committee of Azerbaijan.
