Karimi considered the "Pervezkhan port" as the main artery for economic exchange between Iran and Iraq, through which the largest volume of Iranian non-oil exports to Iraq pass, and it is the only land port with Iraq that worked around the clock and throughout the year without interruption.
He explained that the past four months witnessed the departure of 1,500 trucks loaded with goods from this border crossing towards Iraq, with an increase of 290 percent over the volume of exports in the same period last year.
