Following the outbreak of coronavirus that forced the shutdown of almost all Iranian borders, some 88% of the country’s crossings have reopened for trade exchanges and passenger traffic, says Mojtaba Mousavian, deputy head of Trade Promotion Organization of Iran.
"The remaining border crossings and export terminals will also reopen gradually, as negotiations with neighboring countries are underway," he was quoted as saying by IRNA.
"Iraq accounts for 23% of Iran's exports," he said. “We will do our utmost to boost exports to neighboring countries after the months-long challenges caused by the pandemic.”
According to Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Gholamreza Ansari, Iran's 15 neighboring countries account for 47% of Iran's overall exports.
