Iran, Kazakhstan Expanding Agro Cooperation

Iran will export 1,500 cows annually as well as genetic products to Kazakhstan. The agreement was reached in a meeting between Agriculture Minister of Kazakhstan Assylzhan Mamytbekov and his Iranian counterpart, Mahmoud Hojjati, on Monday, IRNA reported. Mamytbekov expressed his country’s readiness to cooperate with Iran in outsourcing farming.
“We are prepared to allocate fertile land for the cultivation of some crops and to subsidize the project,” he said. Iran has 1 million hectares of land in Ukraine, Tajikistan and a few African countries under the cultivation of water-intensive crops as part of a program dubbed “Beyond Border Farming”.  The project is aimed at cutting down on water consumption and ensuring food security by leasing arable land overseas for growing crops such as oilseeds and grains. “We import corn and oilseeds from Kazakhstan and aim to export Iranian pistachio, saffron and nuts to the country,” Hojjati added. He also announced that Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev is scheduled to pay a visit to Iran later this month.
