TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President’s Chief of Staff Mohammad Nahavandian underlined the country’s determination to expand relations with all European states, specially Germany, and said Berlin will benefit much from trade ties with Tehran.
“It is beneficial to Germany to assume Iran as its powerful trade partner and the Iranian government is resolved to improve relations with all the European countries, specially Germany,” Nahavandian said in a meeting with a German economic and industrial delegation in Tehran on Tuesday.
He stressed that a good climate has been created for cooperation between Iran and Germany and other European countries.
Nahavandian also underscored Iran’s important position in energy supply to Europe and settlement of the regional development as well as the country’s role in establishing peace and stability in the region.
Following the implementation of Geneva nuclear accord struck by Iran and the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) in November 24, the ground has been paved for more participation of the European countries in the Iranian lucrative market. Several European states have so far sent their trade delegations to Iran to study chances for widening trade ties and exchanges with Tehran, while more EU member states are preparing to send similar delegations to the Islamic Republic.
The largest of such delegations comprised of 141 French businessmen and traders who stayed in Tehran for several days earlier this month.
Also, a high-level Belgian trade delegation is scheduled to visit Iran in the next two months, a commerce official announced on Sunday.
