Zarif & Christian Jensen

Iran, Denmark express willingness to expand ties

Iran and Denmark have expressed their willingness to enhance bilateral relations in various fields, particularly in economy.

Speaking at a Monday joint press conference with his Danish counterpart Kristian Jensen in Tehran, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the two sides can expand ties through diplomatic efforts.

Referring to the ongoing crises in the Middle East, Zarif said there are some who seek to escalate extremism and terrorism in the region.

Jensen for his part hailed the long-running and expanding cooperation between Iran and Denmark, especially in view of the impending implementation of the nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries.

He added that Iran has the potential to become a hub for political and economic reasons.

The Danish minister is on a two-day visit to Tehran at the head of an economic and political delegation to hold talks with Iranian officials on issues of mutual interest.
