Trade turnover between Kyrgyzstan and Iran for the first 9 months amounted to $ 11 mln - Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Bishkek, December 21 / Kabar /. Foreign trade turnover between Kyrgyzstan and Iran for the first 9 months of 2016 amounted to $ 11 million, director of the 4th political department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kyrgyzstan Zheenbek Kulubaev told today at a briefing in Bishkek on the occasion of official visit of President of Iran Hassan Rouhani to Kyrgyzstan.

He said that this figure is actually insufficient, since the potential is huge.

"We believe that the visit of the Iranian leader will upgrade our economic relations. Today, Iran mostly exports food products: meat, nuts, pistachios, sunflower oil. We also import their plastic products," he said.

In addition, Kulubaev said that cooperation between Iran and Kyrgyzstan has intensified thanks to Atambayev’s visit to Tehran in 2013.
