Tose'e Etemad Mobin, major shareholder of the Iran Telecommunication Company, signed a memorandum of understanding with Kazakhstan's Kazakhtelecom for cooperation in a variety of fields.

The MoU was signed on the World Communications Day and includes agreement to cooperation on international data transit, development of international fiber optic network, education, and health, Fars news agency reported May 16.
