Aran told Governor General of Isfahan province Mahmoud Hosseini that the main reason for Turkey's large volume of investments is the trust Ankara has placed in Tehran.
He pointed to the visit of 650,000 Iranians to Turkey last year, saying cultural commonalties, age-old relations and common stances, especially on the Palestinian issue, can prepare a suitable ground for promotion of the bilateral ties.
Hosseini for his part outlined the high economic, industrial, tourism and academic potential of Iran, saying that such advantages have encouraged Turkey to raise the volume of its investments in Iran.
He said his province welcomes Turkey's investments there.
The official also called for conclusion of a sisterhood agreement between Isfahan and a city in Turkey enjoying a position equal to that of the Iranian city.
The Turkish diplomat welcomed the proposal and promised that due action will be taken in this regard.
