TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The expo was inaugurated by Iranian Deputy Minister of Industry, Mine and Trade Mojtaba Khosro-Taj, deputy oil minister, Iranian Ambassador to Turkey Ebrahim Taherian and Iranian Consul General to Turkey Bakhtiyar Asad-Zadeh.
A number of Iranian trade and economic companies owners and industrial and petrochemical sectors activists are attending the event.
Last Friday, Iranian and Turkish officials in a meeting in Ankara underlined the need to broaden mutual cooperation in different fields.
A high-ranking Iranian delegation to Turkey, led by the country's First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri, held a joint session with a Turkish delegation in the Turkish capital.
Speaking at the meeting, Jahangiri referred to a recent visit of the Turkish president to Tehran and urged both sides remove all barriers to implementation of reached agreements and elevation of bilateral cooperation.
He said banking, customs and energy sectors were appropriate venues for development of relations and voiced Iran’s readiness to launch further collaboration with Turkey over bilateral, regional and international issues.
Iran’s VP also stressed the need to establish security and fight against terrorist groups inside the region reiterating that all parties could benefit from security cooperation with Iraq.
Underscoring that the referendum on Iraqi Kurdistan had been initiated by the Zionist regime and the US, the official stated that separation of Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) could be detrimental to its people.
He also called for more serious steps to tackle plight of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar saying “efforts should be made to save the oppressed Muslims in the Southeast Asian nation.
At another part of his remarks, Jahangiri maintained that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was an international deal and no country could leave it individually; “all countries need to make efforts so that the US sticks to the agreement.”
The Iranian VP later underlined that Tehran and Ankara had to spare no effort to realize the 30-billion-dollar figure of trade turnover between the two countries.
