Implementing Iran-Uzbekistan deals to boost ties: Raeisi


In a meeting with the visiting Uzbek parliament speaker, Iran’s President Ebrahim Raeisi stressed that the implementation of bilateral agreements will enhance the level of bilateral relations.
Raeisi received the Speaker of the Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis (Parliament) of Uzbekistan Nurdinjon Ismoilov for a meeting in Tehran on Saturday.
During the meeting, the Iranian president noted that 18 cooperation agreements and memoranda of understanding have been signed between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Uzbekistan.
“The exchange of experiences between the parliaments of Iran and Uzbekistan will be an effective and positive step towards the development of relations between the two countries,” Raeisi continued.
He then pointed out the civilizational and cultural commonalities between Iran and Uzbekistan as a suitable ground for the expansion and promotion of commercial and economic cooperation, stating, “Although the growth of political and economic relations between Iran and Uzbekistan in the past year has made the situation different from before, (fulfilling) their potential requires doubling the efforts to promote the economic and commercial relations between both sides.”
For his part, Ismoilov praised the foreign policy of the Raeisi administration in prioritizing the development of relations with neighbors, noting, “In line with the same principled policy, the development of relations with neighbors has similarly been prioritized in the process of amending Uzbekistan’s constitution.”
Stating that the parliaments of the two countries should play an effective role in the development of the cooperation between the governments, the Uzbek top legislative official concluded, “I assure you that the Parliament of Uzbekistan will use all its facilities and potentials in order to implement the agreements between the two countries.”
