The procedure for visiting Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic will be simplified for Iranian citizens wishing to visit the NAR.

The issue was mulled at the meeting of Iranian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Mohsen Pakayin with chairman of the NAR Supreme Majlis Vasif Talibov, the Iranian embassy in Azerbaijan reported on May 28.

Following the discussions on the problems with Iranian citizens’ entering and leaving Nakhchivan, an agreement on resolving this problem was reached at the meeting.

Iran’s trade turnover with Azerbaijan in the first eleven months of 2013stood at $470 million ($448 million exports and $22 million imports), Iran’s customs administration’s latest report shows.

The statistics of Iran’s customs administration are based on the official rate of rial/USD which is different from the free market rate.
