Tehran, Nov 18, 2019 (ICANA) – Head of Iran-Georgia parliamentary friendship group Ali Reza Beigi and his Georgian counterpart Shalva Kikenaveldezia in a meeting reviewed issues of mutual interests.
Beigi expressed happiness over increasing relations between Iran and Georgia, saying over the last four years good negotiations have been held between members of parliamentary friendship groups which have had significant impact on facilitating relations.
Stressing the importance of developing negotiations between Iranian and Georgian senior officials in promoting relations, he hoped for both countries' officials to have more mutual visits in 2020.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Iranian MP underlined the need for removing road-blocks on economic cooperation, saying in spite of the increase in the volume of economic exchanges over the last few years, capacities have not yet been used properly.
He described facilitating banking ties between Iran and Georgia as an important factor for promoting cooperation between two countries.
Beigi offered Iran's support of Georgian developmental and transportation projects, saying both sides' cooperation in this field guarantees many interests for them and for neighbors as well.
Iranian technical and engineering companies are ready for participating in Georgia infrastructural projects, he said adding that Iranian firms have good experiences in implementing infrastructural projects.
Their attendance in Georgia will provide great assistance to developing economic relations, he reiterated.
Meanwhile, Kikenaveldezia said recent parliamentary negotiations between Iranian and Georgian lawmakers have resulted in following up some important projects and removing obstacles on mutual cooperation.
He added that cooperation between Iran and Georgia in agricultural, transportation and tourism fields has not yet reached its desired level.
Kikenaveldezia called for holding talks and finding solution for reinforcing relations.
Georgia welcomes Iranian technical and engineering companies' investment, he noted.
