Spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry stated here on Monday that the will of the neighbors is to keep borders open for more trade exchanges.
Abbas Mousavi made the remarks at his weekly press briefing through a video conference from Tehran.
Some borders are closed due to cautiousness about dealing with the coronavirus pandemic; however, Iran’s three joint borders with the Iraqi Kurdistan region are open and trade exchanges are underway there, Mousavi said.
Trade exchanges are going on while the health protocols are met, the official added.
He further said Iran follows measures on which it has reached an agreement with neighboring countries to continue economic exchanges along borders.
Based on mutual agreements, borders are open at the times set before, Mousavi underlined.
