“One of the important factors for the expansion of trade relations between the two countries is the establishment of banking relations between the two countries; it is necessary for both sides to take the necessary steps in this regard,” the Iranian minister said.
Juma for his part referred to the agreement between the two countries for the implementation of a project to complete the facilities of the Tajikistan Istiqlol Tunnel and noted that his country is ready to fulfill its financial obligations in this regard.
