Iran, Afghanistan to cooperate to improve nation’s mines

(MENAFN) Deputy Industry Mining and Trade Minister Reza Mohtashami-Pour, who took a trip to Afghanistan for a two-day visit, stated that Afghan administrators have urged on Iranian mining firms to improve the nation’s mines.

On Tuesday, Mohtashami-Pour stated to the ministry’s news portal Shata that “Afghan officials want Iranian mining companies to start operating in their country, and negotiations are scheduled to continue next week at the expert level followed by field visits.”

Mohtashami-Pour stated that Throughout the visit, good discussions took place about mining collaboration and possible difficulties that occur because of guidelines and some decisions by the Afghan administration, in addition to volumes that could be the opening points for Tehran-Kabul collaboration in the mining business.

In line with the deputy minister, Iranian firms, mainly big companies, are careful about security problems in Afghanistan.
