According to Caspian International News Agency in Rasht, this visit is with the aim of developing trade relations between Iran and Russia. Unveiling the statue of Omar Khayyam in the park in front of the Astrakhan State University by the governors of Gilan and Astrakhan, as a symbol of Iran’s friendship, is among the plans of this visit.
Meeting the governor of Astrakhan, lecturing in the Iran-Russia Traders Seminar, following up the past agreements including those about tariff reduction, visiting the under-construction center called Iranian Trade House, and visiting some trade centers, shipping centers and ports are other plans for this two-day trip of the governor of Gilan.
Last month in a formal letter, the governor of Astrakhan invited Mohammad Ali Najafi, the governor of Gilan, to a visit to this province.
