The Iranian ambassador to Armenia has said that "despite the fact that Armenia is a country bordering East Azerbaijan [Province of Iran], we have not been able to exceed half a billion dollars in our trade with this country. So, efforts should be made to increase this volume to one billion dollars." ParsToday reported.
And according to the ISNA News Agency, in a webinar on the meeting of the Tabriz Committee on Agriculture, Food Industry and Environment, Abbas Badakhshan Zohouri said: "We must have a major program, by the strict order of the president, to establish contacts with all neighboring countries."
Noting that Armenia is a very good bridge between Iran, the Eurasian Union and the European Union, Zohouri stressed: "Taking into account that Armenia has preferential customs duties with EU countries, we can use that potential to export our goods."
