TEHRAN (FNA)- A team of South Korean trade and economic envoys visited Iran’s Shahid Rajayee port on Wednesday to study the investment opportunities in there.
The four-member delegation comprising diplomats of the South Korean embassy in Tehran met director general of Hormuzgan Ports and Maritime Organization Ibrahim Idani and Head of the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s Representative Office in the province.
The South Korean Trade Attaché thanked the Iranian foreign ministry and Ports and Maritime Organization for arranging the visit to Shahid Rajayee Port, and said, “We will encourage the South Korean Companies to invest in Shahid Rajayee port after we become familiar with the port’s capabilities and capacities.”
Idani, for his part, said that most of South Korea’s commodities enter the Iranian markets through Shahid Rajayee port, and added, “For the same reason we are looking for increasing the level of our cooperation with South Korean ports.”
Last month, South Korean President Park Geun-hye in a meeting with Iranian Ambassador to Seoul Hassan Taherian voiced Korean companies’ willingness to play a stronger role in the Iranian market.
“The Korean companies are interested in (wider) presence in the Iranian market,” President Park said during the meeting in Seoul.
The South Korean president pointed to the status quo of Seoul-Tehran relations, and expressed the hope that the countries’ ties would further broaden in the future.
The Iranian ambassador, for his part, pointed to the good relations between the two states, and said, “The conditions are set for cooperation and deepening of relations in all areas.”
Iranian Ambassador to Seoul Ahmad Massoumifar said a large delegation of South Korean industrialists and investors are due to take part in a business and trade conference in Iran’s Northern province of Qazvin in the near future.
