TEHRAN (FNA)- Afghanistan’s Ambassador to Tehran Nasir Ahmad Nour on Sunday underscored Iran’s modern industries and high-ranking engineering companies, and called for more economic and technical interactions with Tehran.

Speaking at a meeting of Iranian businessmen, Ahmad Nour noted that political factors have no impact on Iran-Afghanistan relations.

He further added that Afghanistan is ready to facilitate visa issuance between Tehran and Kabul and there are good potentials to enhance cooperation between both public and private sectors of two states.

The diplomat said that Afghanistan is a major export destination for Iranian goods.

Ahmad Nour underlined importance of diplomatic relations between Tehran and Kabul and said it was expected that Afghan president pay a visit to Iran on first month of new Iranian calendar year (March 21-April 20).

Iran is one of the most important donors to Afghanistan, which has kept its promises to help to the reconstruction of the war-ravaged country.

Iran has built several roads, power transmission lines, border stations and many other infrastructure projects in Afghanistan to better link the two nations.

Iran has also contributed more than $50mln annually to Afghan anti-narcotics efforts during the last five years.
