There is a huge potential for Azerbaijan's investments in the copper and zinc mines located in Iran's provinces bordering Azerbaijan, the member of the Iranian parliament's mines and industries commission Ali Alilou told Trend during his visit to Baku.
"There are favorable conditions for Azerbaijan's investments in the Cheshmekonan field in Shebustar town and Sungun field in Varzegan town located in the province of East Azerbaijan," he said.
