During his visit to Iran last week, the minister signed protocols for cooperation in the areas of agriculture, energy, transport, tourism and environment. Iran's initiative to construct a transport corridor was also discussed.
Moskovski said that from the moment it had become clear that the sanctions against Iran will be lifted, Tehran began negotiations with several countries on the creation of a transport corridor passing through Bulgaria.

According to the minister, Iran has readiness to invest in the construction of a transport corridor and the purchase of sailing vessels for use in the Black Sea.
