"Half of Iran's exports include petrochemicals, gas condensates and gas while the other half is mineral materials such as copper and metal," he said.
"The same combination is being exported to China, in addition to machine-made and handmade carpets, dried nuts, handicrafts, sweets, chocolate , rose water," he indicated.
"The customs administration is responsible for statistics and unfortunately it has not released any data about exports volume for the current Iranian year (started March 21, 2019) so far," he added.
"There is a meaningful difference between statistics released by China and Iran customs administrations, however this difference is logical in some aspects," he said.
"There is no specific problem, but the issue of Iranian exporters with China is return of exports foreign currency revenues," he noted.
"We had a problem over exports of Iran 's fishery products to China and recently the parliament has approved an agreement to quarantine them, so Iran's fishery products would be directly being exported to China," he said.
