Establishing Iran-Turkiye free trade zone will prevent smuggling of goods: MP

Tehran, IRNA – Iranian Lawmaker Rahim Zare has said that an agreement between Iran and Turkiye to establish a free trade zone will help prevent smuggling of goods and boost bilateral trade.

Zare, who is a member of the Iranian Parliament's Budget and Planning Committee, was referring to the agreement which Iran and Turkiye reached during last week trip of President Ebrahim Raisi to Ankara where he and his Turkish counterpart agreed to expand bilateral cooperation in other fields as well.

In an interview with IRNA on Thursday, Zare said that the agreements reached between the two countries’ presidents are significant in terms of politics, economy and culture, and could bring considerable benefits for Iran.  

The development of the tourism industry would bring economic prosperity for the Islamic Republic, the MP said, adding that developing the industry is one of the results of boosting Iran-Turkiye economic and cultural ties.

He further noted that Turkiye needs Iran's energy, gas, and oil resources, and Iran would enjoy economic benefits by exporting gas to its neighbor. Boosting trade ties with Ankara would also help Tehran mitigate effects of the anti-Iran sanctions.
