Iran's First Vice President Mohammad-Reza Rahimi on Thursday pledged that his country would exert best of its efforts to remove any obstacles in doing business with Turkey.
"You might have problems from time to time in doing business with us but these are not done on purpose. Please do not get offended if you had seen any problems in Iran. Under orders from Ahmadinejad, we will remove all obstacles. We have no friend like Turkey in today's world," Rahimi told a meeting of the Turkish-Iranian Business Council in Istanbul, organized by Turkey's Foreign Economic Relations Board.
Rahimi said Turkey played big roles in the world with its power and stable government, adding that Turkey's neighborhood for Iran was of utmost importance.
"We have started to lay down the foundation of a very strong building with Turkey. I hope this building would never be damaged," Rahimi said.
Rahimi said Turkey and Iran agreed during a visit of the Turkish premier to Tehran to boost trade volume up to 30 billion USD, adding that new opportunities had presented themselves for the two countries.
