TEHRAN March 14(Shana)–The head of Iranian-British Parliamentary Friendship Group has said British investors are welcomed in Iran.

“Investment potential in Iran’s oil and gas, energy and mining sectors is an opportunity for British investors,” Abbas-Ali Mansouri-Arani said in a meeting with Norman Lamont, president of British-Iranian Chamber of Commerce, in London.
“There are good potentialities and opportunities for investment in the oil and gas, energy and mining sectors as well as transport infrastructure in Iran,” he said.
Aria said the “existing problems should not cause any obstacle to the broadening of economic and commercial ties between the two countries.”
In the meeting, Lamont said the British companies have fallen victim to international sanctions imposed on Iran.
