Iran bolsters maritime ties with Kazakhstan

Dubai: Iranian and Kazakh officials have vowed further expansion of mutual cooperation in ports and maritime areas.

During a meeting in the Iranian capital yesterday, Director General of Iran's Ports and Maritime Organization (PMO) Jalil Eslami and Head of Aktau International Trading Port Company Mikhail Yuriovich explored avenues for bolstering and reinvigorating relations in ports and maritime fields.

The Kazakh official announced Astana's readiness to increase the volume of wheat and metals exports to Iran, and expressed the hope that launching Kazakhstan's railway would link his country to Iran's port city of Bandar Abbas on the rims of the Persian Gulf, and that container transportation between the two countries would increase.  [02/07/14]
