Tehran Eying Strong Ties with Tashkent

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, in a message to his Uzbek counterpart Shavkat Mirziyoyev, said that his country is determined to further bolster bilateral ties with the Central Asian country in all areas of mutual interest.

In a message cabled on Sunday afternoon, on the advent of the 28th anniversary of Uzbekistan’s independence on September 1, President Rouhani congratulated President Mirziyoyev, and called for broader bilateral ties.
 
Rouhani expressed hope that the growing relations between Tehran and Tashkent would continue to further consolidate and deepen in all political, economic and cultural areas.
 
The Iranian president also prayed to God Almighty for President Mirziyoyev’s continued health and success, as well as the Uzbek nation’s felicity and well-being.
 
Uzbekistan commemorates its Independence Day on 1st of September, in celebration of the country’s independence from USSR in 1991.
 
Last month, Iranian First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri, in a meeting with Uzbekistan’s Prime Minister Abdulla Aripov, voiced Tehran’s readiness to broaden bilateral relations with Tashkent in all areas.
 
In a meeting on August 11 on the sideline of 1st Caspian Economic Forum, in Turkmenbashy, Turkmenistan, Jahangiri and Aripov exchanged views on the ways to enhance Tehran-Tashkent cooperation in all fields of mutual interest.
 
Jahangiri said that both countries should try to remove barriers to trade ties so that a comprehensive document of cooperation can be signed in the near future.
 
Pointing to potentials of cultural cooperation, he noted that the Islamic Republic enjoys great experiences in repairing and restoring historical sites and that it is ready to share this knowledge.
 
Jahangiri further highlighted the need to stop other countries from intervening in Iran-Uzbekistan ties, noting, “Iran and Uzbekistan are two key players in the region which share common interests and threats. Cooperation between the two countries in security areas can help regional stability.”
 
For his part, Abdulla Aripov said that the two countries should continue bilateral and multilateral cooperation to uproot extremism in the region.
 
Uzbekistan welcomes Iranian companies’ investment, he said, adding that level of bilateral cooperation and trade ties has improved in recent months, compared to the previous year, but there is still need to tap into full potentials of cooperation.
 
A week later, Iran dispatched a new ambassador to the Central Asian country.
 
Before the new envoy’s departure from Tehran to Tashkent, President Rouhani, in a meeting with the new ambassadors to Uzbekistan, urged the diplomat to spare no efforts to further cement bilateral ties with the country of his mission.
 
In a meeting with Iranian new envoy to Uzbekistan Hamid Nayyerabadi, President Rouhani wished the diplomat success and asked him to do his best to introduce the capacities and potentials of Iran to local investors to forge relations with the public and private sector representatives.
 
Early in May, Chairman of Iran ' s Strategic Council on Foreign Relations Seyed Kamal Kharrazi, in a meeting with Uzbek Foreign Minister Abdulaziz Kamilov, discussed the threats posed to the Central Asia after ISIL ' s transfer from Syria to Afghanistan.
 
Kharrazi and Kamilov, in their meeting on May 02 in Uzbekistan’s capital city of Tashkent, exchanged views on the security provisions to counter the threats posed by terrorism.
 
Iran and Uzbekistan should recognize their common cultural identity and build their modern civilization based on it, the former Iranian foreign minister said.
 
Iran attaches great importance to its relationship with its neighbors, he said, adding, “Iran strives to broaden its relationship with neighboring countries in line with spreading stability and security in the region.”
 
The relationship between the two countries is on the growth and development track, Kharrazi added.
 
Iran and Uzbekistan enjoy a rich cultural and civilization heritage, he said, adding, “When different Uzbek cities such as Samarkand, Bukhara and Khwarazm are listed, we observe that each of these cities was home to distinguished and outstanding scientists.”
 
Elsewhere in his remarks, Kharrazi touched upon the way of construction of road and rail infrastructures between the two countries and proposed, “setting up an airline, which can connect capitals of the two countries directly, is essential.”
 
For his part, Uzbek Foreign Minister Abdulaziz Kamilov pointed to the amicable ties between Iran and Uzbekistan and said that a brief look to the history of the two countries shows that Iran and Uzbekistan are on the considerable development and growth track.
