A senior official at Iran’s Foreign Ministry said a new channel has been created to export Iranian goods to Central Asia through Afghanistan.

Deputy Foreign Minister for the Economic Diplomacy Affairs Gholamreza Ansari made the announcement on the sidelines of the 11th meeting of the Foreign Economic Relations Coordinating Headquarters on Sunday, Mehr News Agency (MNA) reported.

Noting that the focal subject of the meeting was Iran’s trade relations with Afghanistan, Ansari said, “Developing economic relations with Afghanistan and removing obstacles to this end were among major topics discussed in the meeting.”

He referred to the new channel for facilitating Iran’s exports to Central Asia via Afghanistan as “a positive step which was highly welcomed by both Iranian and Afghan traders.”

According to the official, Iran-Afghanistan trade relations have grown despite problems caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and imposition of economic sanctions.
