Kazakh ambassador to Iran calls for expanding agricultural ties
Tehran, Iran, Nov. 23
By Milad Fashtami - Trend:
Kazakhstan's ambassador to Tehran Baghdad Amiriyev said that Tehran and Astana have great potential to boost their agricultural trade.
"But the businessmen of the two countries do not know the other side's market very well," he said, Iran's IRNA News Agency reported on Nov. 23.
"If the two sides understand the potential of the other side, the bilateral trade would greatly boost," he said.
"Iran can export citrus, kiwi, chicken, dairy products, flowers and plants to Kazakhstan," the official noted.
Amiriyev went on to note that Astana can also export wheat and livestock to Tehran.
"Tourism can also help the two countries boost their bilateral ties," he said.
Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev said at a meeting with his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani in Astana Sept. 9 that the Kazakh-Iranian trading house is planned to be opened in Kazakhstan.
