TEHRAN, Feb. 20 (MNA) – The Islamic Republic of Iran seeks to launch a regular shipping line from Bandar Abbas to the Syrian port of Latakia.

Captain Abdullah Hassoumi said on Saturday that the Islamic Republic is planning to establish a special shipping line to export Iranian merchandise to the Syrian port of Latakia.

He went on to say that the move aims at supporting the country’s export, adding that the first cargo will be sent on March 10.
