In an online meeting, the two exchanged views on the latest state of bilateral cooperation in the field of maritime transport and stressed the need to further increase the flow of goods between the two countries' ports in the Caspian Sea, Mehr News Agency (MNA) reported on Monday.
They also conferred on the ongoing issues between the two neighboring countries in the field of ports as well as preparation of drafts of documents for the expansion of future maritime cooperation.
Also present in the meeting was Abbas Mousavi, Iran's Ambassador in Baku who referred to the Caspian Sea as the “sea of peace, good neighborliness, friendship and cooperation.”
He noted that Iran and the Republic of Azerbaijan, as two coastal states of the Caspian Sea, have many religious, cultural and historical commonalities, and the Caspian Sea has provided countless capacities and opportunities for cooperation between the two countries.
To achieve the desired result, the two countries' efforts and cooperation in the sectors of energy, economy, shipping, fishing, tourism and marine sciences must be multiplied, he added.
