President Raisi after a two-day trip to Tajikistan and Uzbekistan returned to Tehran on Thursday night with the welcome of the First Vice President and the Deputy for International Affairs of the Office of the Supreme Leader.

About the results and achievements of the trip to Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, he said that ECO is an important organization for the communication between ECO members, and in this summit, at first, they presented a report on what has been done in the past and plans for future actions were proposed.

He went on to point out that transit and trade facilitation, especially for intra-regional trade, was one of the important issues raised in this summit, and noted that the issue of customs facilitation was one of the other issues raised in this summit.

"Environment and attention to science and new technologies and tourism were also among other topics and all the member countries expressed their views on economic issues," he added.

The issue of Palestine is the first issue of the Islamic world. He went on to say that the visit to Tajikistan was a strategic document and 18 cooperation agreements were signed."
