Kermanshah, Dec 2, IRNA-Head of Iran's Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Mines, Alinaqi Khamoushi on Saturday said that just as borders are lifted in Europe, the same move should be considered by Islamic states.
He made the remark at the fourth conference and exhibition on the strategy of Iraqi market and its executive strategies in Kermanshah.
Khamoushi noted that the people of Islamic states are a single Ummah and therefore no borders should separate them.
"Given the current shortages in Iraq, we should provide the Iraqi people with the facilities available in Iran. We are duty-bound to do our best to help our neighbor under the most critical conditions.
"We should act in such a way as to build up mutual confidence.
We believe that to have healthy trade relations, neither side should export goods to the other country without issuing the required documents," he said.
The official said that Iranians can participate in establishment of new factories in Iraq or help reconstruct the damaged industrial units.
"There is no need for Iraqi partners to invest in such joint projects. Iran's government will make investment and once the projects become operational, in the long-run the due amount will be repaid through turnover. If this is materialized, a major part of Iraq's problems will be solved," he added.
He noted that according to the plans made at Iran-Iraq Chamber of Commerce in Tehran, every Iranian border province will be active on Iraqi market.
The fourth conference and exhibition on the strategy of Iraqi market and its executive strategies opened in the border city of Kermanshah today and will continue up to December 6.
