Iran and Turkey set up a joint committee on banking to help achieve trade of $30 billion by the end of 2017.
The Central Bank of Iran (CBI) said the first meeting of the committee was held on Wednesday in Tehran.
The two delegations discussed ways to remove obstacles to improved banking relations between the two countries, the use of local currency for trade, connection of the switch cards of the two countries, and continuation of the bilateral talks in the next three months.
The next meeting is to be held in Turkey in late February.
