Noting that governments of both countries were now trying to determine the location of the industrial zone, Ergun said the zone would be constructed either in one of Turkey's eastern Igdir, Agri and Van provinces or Yuksekova town of the southeastern Hakkari province.

Ergun noted that the industrial zone would have remarkable contributions to the transportation infrastructure and residential areas of the region, as well as to neighboring countries, adding its location would become clear until the end of July 2010.

Commenting on his meeting Ergun, Iran's Assistant First Vice-President Mohammadi said that activities aiming at the establishment of a Turkish-Iranian joint industrial zone continued successfully.

Pointing to the increase in the number of border gates between Turkey and Iran, Mohammadi said 2 customs points had been opened in the recent term, adding Esendere-Sero customs gate would also be opened in 2-3 months.
