Praising the rising trade exchange between the two countries he said, “Attempts are being made to complete the infrastructure required for connecting Iran’s railroad to Azerbaijan,” hoping that the power grids of the two countries will soon be interconnected. The Azerbaijani official, for his turn, said: “Trade between the two countries is at acceptable level but both nations have to take necessary steps to further facilitate and increase banking and customs exchange.”
