Iran’s Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian says Qatar has officially deployed a special business representative to the Islamic Republic as it moves ahead with plans to expand ties with its northern neighbor.

Ardakanian said that Iran is now the fourth country after the US, Britain and France to which Qatar has appointed a special envoy for commercial and business affairs.

“This means clear-cut and serious determination to develop tries in various sectors,” said Ardaknian while on the sidelines of the seventh meeting of Iran-Qatar Joint Commission of Economic Cooperation which was participated by in the central city of Isfahan.

Ardakanian and Qatar’s Minister of Commerce and Industry Ali bin Ahmed Al Kuwari signed a major document to expand energy and economic ties at the meeting on Tuesday.

The document covers cooperation between the two countries in 14 major fields with a focus on joint projects in water, sewage treatment, electricity and natural gas.

Iran and Qatar are two major global producers of natural gas as they share the world’s largest gas field in the Persian Gulf.

Ardaknian, who had travelled to Doha earlier this month to carry out final preparations for the important forum in Isfahan, said that the spread of the coronavirus in the Middle East caused Iran and Qatar to shelve plans for a larger intergovernmental summit.
