Iran, Turkey call for expansion of telecommunication cooperation

Ankara, June 4, IRNA - Iran’s Minister of Telecommunication and Information Technology Mohammad Soleimani conferred on Thursday with Turkish Minister of Industries and Commerce Nihat Ergün on expansion of mutual cooperation.
The Iranian minister heading a technical and specialized delegation arrived in Ankara Wednesday night.

At the meeting, the Iranian minister congratulated the Turkish minister on appointment to his new post and wished him success during his tenure.

Iran believes that ties and cooperation between the two countries should be further bolstered at mutual, regional and international levels, Soleimani said.

He hoped to witness further expansion of mutual relations and cooperation to a more desirable level.

Iran has made significant progress in the field of telecommunication and technological know-how and is to identify such potentials in both countries to allow their private sectors to play a more active role in this regard.

The Turkish minister, for his part, said a 35-member delegation arrived in Iran last week to review expansion of mutual cooperation in the field.

He expressed the hope that Iran would help remove existing obstacles and prepare the grounds for active presence of Turkish companies in Iran.

Current level of annual trade exchange between the two countries stands at dlrs 10 billion which is not satisfactory, he said.

The Iranian delegation is to attend the second meeting on Iran-Turkey telecommunication cooperation Thursday afternoon.
