Iran’s Investment Top Priority for Afghanistan

TEHRAN (FNA) A visiting Afghan official Tuesday night described Iran’s investments in his country as vital.

“Investments made in Afghanistan by Iran are much more important to us than those made by any other country,” head of Afghanistan’s Office for Supporting Investments said in a meeting with the governor general of the northern province of Qazvin last night.

“Afghanistan prefers Iran’s investments to those of other countries, thus, action should be taken to create more trading and investment opportunities for these two countries,” he further reiterated.

“From any perspective, the Afghan government gives a top priority to Iran’s investments because these two countries share ample commonalities in religion, culture and language,” the official added.

He also stressed the need for Iranian and Afghan experts to increase their interactions in a bid to assist expansion of trade and economic ties between the two neighboring states.
