Iran-Turkmenistan Trade Value Touches $2bln in 2008

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran-Turkmenistan trade value stood at $2 billion in 2008, said Iranian Ambassador to Ashgabat Mohammad Reza Forqani.



"The two-way trade in the (Iranian calendar year) 1385 (ended March 19, 2007) exceeded $1.4 billion and reached $1.8 billion in the next (calendar) year," he added, Tehran Times reported.

He said that the customs office in Iran's Lotfabad border with Turkmenistan is one of the country's most active customs offices with over 200 trailers crossing it daily which indicates good bilateral transaction.

Iran is Turkmenistan's No. 2 trade partner, the diplomat noted according to a report by the state-broadcaster.
