Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mahmoud Vaezi said on Saturday that a document for promoting Iran-South Korea cooperation in the field of communications and information technology is being compiled to be signed by the two countries’ communications ministers soon.
Talking to IRNA, he said Iranian and South Korean companies involved in the communications and information technology sectors are to discuss avenues for boosting collaboration during South Korean delegation’s visit to Tehran.
Communications and Information Technology Ministry is seeking to compile a document on joint cooperation, but it will not be completed until the South Korean team’s visit to Tehran. Therefore, it is scheduled to be inked by the two countries’ ministers of communications.
Referring to the two countries’ good relations in the fields of communications and information technology before the implementation of Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Vaezi said that efforts are currently underway to further promote exchanges under current conditions.
South Korean companies including Samsung are active in Iran which will pave the way for expansion of mutual cooperation, he said.
South Korean President Park Geun-hye will start her three-day trip to Tehran Sunday at the invitation of his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani.
Signing several cooperation agreements, exploring ways of strengthening collaboration in the fields of energy, banking and insurance, infrastructure projects, health and treatment, science, technology and culture are on the agenda of the two countries’ officials.
