|‘Azerbaijan has important status in Iran’s foreign policy’||
TEHRAN – Iranian First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri has said that Tehran attaches great importance to relations with neighboring countries and Azerbaijan has an important status in this respect.
Jahangiri made the remarks during a meeting with Azeri Minister of Communications and Information Technologies Ali Abbasov in Tehran on Wednesday.
He said cultural, religious and historical affinities between Iran and Azerbaijan have paved the way for expansion of fraternal relations.
He stated that it is necessary to take steps to increase economic interactions between the two neighbors.
Jahangiri added that Azeri President Ilham Aliyev’s trip to Iran opened new chapter in relations.
In April, the Azeri president made a trip to Iran during which three memorandums of understanding and one agreement for bilateral cooperation were signed.
For his part, Abbasov praised Iran for its stance toward the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
Abbasov described his visits with Iranian officials as positive and said that an Azeri private sector delegation will hold talks with their Iranian counterparts to study expansion of economic cooperation.
He went on to say that a joint economic committee’s meeting will be held in near future, expressing hope that it would help promotion of economic interactions.
