1st VP: Iran to choose its economic partners after sanctions lifted

Ardebil, July 21, IRNA – First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri said on Tuesday that the Islamic Republic of Iran would choose its economic partners after economic sanctions are lifted.

After economic sanctions are removed, Iran will choose its economic partners and those countries or companies viewing Iran as a small market with limited capacity cannot capture this market as the country is the main decision maker that chooses its partners, he said.

Iranian industrialists should choose their partners from around the world, he said, adding that only those foreign companies can work here that regard their Iranian sides as their economic partners and believe in huge capacities of the Iranian market.

Foreign companies should have joint cooperation for production of products not only with Iranian companies but with regional and global markets, he said.

Iran should not be looked at as a consumer market for foreign products, he underlined.
