Iran’s minister of cultural heritage, tourism and handicrafts says Iran is seeking to further expand its tourism relations with Tajikistan as tourism ties among regional countries bring them closer together.

“In a meeting with Tajikistan’s foreign minister as head of the country’s Tourism Organization, we announced our readiness to help on all fronts. We stand ready to help Tajikistan in all areas and work together,” said the minister.
“Iranian companies have good experience in economic and development projects and have also implemented several projects in Tajikistan such as the construction of bridges, power plants, dams, etc.,” he said.
“Also in the tourism sector which is the scope of our responsibility, we are ready and will help in all areas in order to further upgrade the level of relations between the two countries,” he added.
