Iran's president urges Caspian republics to increase cooperation


(MENAFN) Iran's President Ebrahim Raeisi said a Caspian presidents' meeting in Ashgabat that cooperation among the littoral states is becoming increasingly crucial in view of world trends.

"This interaction will not only lead to economic prosperity and increase the welfare of our nations, but also strengthen regional peace and stability and solving the problems of the Caspian Sea zone merely through its coastal countries," he stated in Turkmenistan's capital Wednesday evening.

Raeisi praised ideas given by Caspian Sea presidents to expand economic cooperation in many spheres.

Iran, he added, regards the Caspian as a sea of peace and goodwill and expresses its willingness to engage in broad collaboration based on mutual respect and interests.

"The Caspian Sea, our common heritage and capital, the axis of bonds and friendship, and the source of blessings for more than the 270 million people of its coastal countries, which reflects the five countries in the mirror of a single water area.”

"Just as our civilizing fathers and cultured mothers have enjoyed peace and prosperity on these shores and in the region for thousands of years, so our nations, as permanent seaside neighbors, must have a long-term approach towards the Caspian Sea as a sea of friendship and cooperation so that we have fulfilled our responsibility towards the current and future generations."
