Referring to the very good relations between Iran and Turkmenistan in the last 30 years, Dr Raisi stated, "Despite the obstacles that coronavirus and some other issues have created in the relations between the two countries over the past few months, today we see that in addition to transit and gas swaps, strengthening trade and economic relations between the two countries is also on the agenda".
Stating that the indicators show that the level of relations has increased in the past few months, especially in the field of economic and trade between the two countries, Ayatollah Raisi added, "We hope that this visit can establish and expand the cordial cooperation that exists between the two countries in playing a role in regional and international fields".
