Iran’s Energy Ministry has adopted a plan to meet Afghanistan’s electricity needs, and will be announcing it soon, said Tehran’s Ambassador to Afghanistan Bahador Aminian on Wednesday.
“The two countries have many opportunities for ties development in different fields that aliens should not be allowed to sabotage them, so if Afghanistan intends to develop its ties, Iran would be the best option,” he said on the sidelines of the joint exhibition being held in Kabul.
The Iranian delegation also met Political Deputy Mirwais Nab at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Nab called the expansion of trade and investment relations with neighbouring countries and the region one of the fundamental priorities of Afghanistan’s foreign policy.
Referring to the problems and investment opportunities in Afghanistan and Iran, he expressed hope that the opening of the first joint municipal services exhibition in Kabul would be a “good start” for the growth and development of trade, transit and joint ventures between traders and investors of the two countries.
The representatives of the private sector and investors also shared their views and questions about trade and investment in both nations.
