Official Asks for Direct Flights between Tabriz, Khujand Cities


TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Iranian official called for the start of direct flights between Iran's Northwestern city of Tabriz and Tajikistan's Northern city of Khujand, given the two nations' enthusiasm for making reciprocal visits.

Mayor of Tabriz city Alireza Novin made the remarks in a meeting with Head of Iran-Tajikistan Friendship Association Sa'd Kheirollaov in Tabriz city on Sunday. 

He said that exchanging cultural and art groups, tourist visits and also mutual investments by the two countries will further strengthen the bilateral relations and mutual cooperation between the two nations. 

Iran and Tajikistan have recently accelerated expansion of their ties and cooperation and observers believe that the good achievements gained in area of their mutual cooperation should be deemed as a result of the efforts made by the two countries' officials.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Tajik counterpart Emomali Rahmon, in a meeting in the Kuwaiti capital city late October, explored avenues for the further expansion of bilateral relations. 

During the meeting held on the sidelines of the 1st summit of the Asian Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) in Kuwait city, Ahmadinejad and Rahmon studied the ongoing cooperation between the two countries as well as future outlook for mutual cooperation. 

The two sides also underlined the necessity for rapid and effective implementation of joint infrastructural projects in the field of energy, transportation, industry, agriculture, economy, science and culture.
