High-ranking officials from Iran and Kazakhstan signed 11 agreements and memorandums of understanding (MoUs) in a bid to boost cooperation between the two Asian countries in diverse areas, including economy and politics.

The documents were signed in a ceremony in Tehran on Monday with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his Kazakh counterpart Nursultan Nazarbayev in attendance.

The agreements are to boost Tehran-Astana cooperation in a wide variety of fields, ranging from technology, road and rail transport, commerce and environmental protection to prisoner exchanges.

Heading a senior delegation, Nazarbayev arrived in the Iranian capital on Monday to strengthen bilateral, regional, and international ties between Tehran and Astana.

The agreements come against the backdrop of a new wave of interest in ties with Iran after Tehran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) on July 14, 2015 reached a conclusion over the text of a comprehensive 159-page deal on Tehran’s nuclear program and started implementing it on January 16.

The comprehensive nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), terminated all nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran.
