Iran can play role in EU energy security: Larijani

New York, Sept 2, IRNA – Iran can play a role in providing Europe with energy security, Majlis (parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani said on Tuesday.

He made the remarks in a meeting with Deputy Speaker of the French Parliament Laurence Dumont.
Investment in fields of oil, gas and petrochemicals is Iran’s priority in economic cooperation with France, the official added.
He said that cooperation between Iran and France in field of gas can increase Europe’s energy security.
Larijani invited his French counterpart to pay a visit to Iran and called for increase of cooperation between the two countries’ parliaments.
Despite some problems it has, the nuclear deal with P5+1 is an acceptable agreement, he noted.
Larijani noted that we should wait to see the result of discussions on the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action (JCPOA) in Iran’s majlis.
Fighting terrorism is important for both Iran and France because terrorism will not be limited to the Middle East and it is a global threat, the speaker added.
