Zarif of Iran focused on trade during his tour of Turkey

Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif is working to negotiate in Turkey to restore the trade relations of the countries affected by the new coronavirus pandemic.

"During my visit to Turkey, we will talk to country officials about the resumption of economic ties after the coronavirus," he said after landing in Ankara.

In a survey conducted by the Tehran Chamber of Commerce last month, the volume of trade exchanges between Iran and Turkey has gone viral, with viral outbreaks and illegal sanctions targeting the Islamic Republic's economic relations with the world outside the US. The first quarter declined significantly...

According to the study, bilateral trade totaled $ 645 million at the end of March, a drop of 70 percent compared to the first quarter of 2019.

Zarif said relations with neighbors for the Islamic Republic were a foreign policy priority, his first visit to Syria, the epidemic in April, and now the emergence of Turkey.

Zarif said Iran's close-knit nature and Turkey's ties require continued bilateral consultations.

Foreign ministerial meetings with Turkish officials are expected to address regional and international issues, including energy ties.
