Iranian exports to the United Arab Emirates over three months reached approximately $3 billion, making the UAE the second largest importer of Iranian goods, Al-Khaleej Online reported.

In the same three months, between 21 March and 22 July, Iranian non-oil exports were worth some $15.45 billion, the UK-based news website added.

Iranian non-oil exports grew 14.7 per cent.

“China, the UAE, Iraq, Afghanistan, South Korea, India and Turkey were among the most important target markets for Iran’s exported goods in the first three months of the current Iranian year,” Iran’s Fars News Agency reported.
