Tehran, Tashkent Interested in Closer Ties

High-ranking diplomats from Iran and Uzbekistan exchanged views about a range of issues, including ways of boosting bilateral relations and cooperation in various spheres.
In a meeting with First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Uzbekistan Vakhabov Javlon Abdujalolovich in Tashkent on Monday, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Asia and Pacific Affairs Ebrahim Rahimpour expressed Tehran’s readiness to promote ties with Tashkent in all fields, including politics, trade, transport, tourism and investment, Tasnim News Agency reported.
“Iran is keen to connect Uzbekistan to international waters and facilitate rail, road and air transport, and will consider any proposal by the Central Asian country in this regard,” he said.
The Uzbek deputy foreign minister said the country’s new president has underlined the importance of closer ties between the two countries.
The remarks come against the backdrop of a new wave of interest in boosting trade ties with Iran after the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and major powers, which came into force in January 2016.
