Iran signs MoU on port cooperation with Netherlands
“The agreement holds great significance given the role played by both parties in their areas of jurisdiction,” Haegen said.
The main topic of the negotiations shows that Iran and Netherlands aim to use current facilities in order to allow maritime logistics.
Akhoundi stated that the Netherlands is a very important country in maritime transport and the country’s ports assumed the leading role in this field in Europe.
He also reported, “Negotiations were held over the development of Phase 3 of Shahid Rajaee Port as well as Chabahar port for the Dutch side to take part in Iran’s port tenders in case of willingness.”
Akhoundi said that the two countries have not signed any MoU on road transport yet but he expressed the hope that they would sign an agreement via these negotiations in the future, adding that there is a MoU draft which has been signed since 800 Iranian trucks commute to the Netherlands currently.
It is reported that Iran’s cooperation with the Netherlands can provide an opportunity to enhance the relations between the country and Europe.
