‘Iran safest partner for economic cooperation’

STOCKHOLM, Jun. 01 (MNA) – Iran’s FM Zarif at Stockholm business forum on Wed. reassured all countries that Iran is the safest partner in economic cooperation, not due to ‘military security’ but rather the ‘trust’ it has in its people.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif made the remark in Iran-Sweden joint economic forum held at Sheraton Stockholm Hotel on Wednesday, adding “the Iranian nation stood firm through a historic regime of what Clinton called ‘crippling’ and this is why we have absolute faith and reliance on our people.”

He went on to add that the presence of Iranian and Swedish private sectors in the forum indicates the many opportunities for economic, security and development cooperation between the two countries.

“During the process of nuclear negotiations we showed our full commitment to our obligations, and I hope with cooperation between trade delegations we can move beyond this limit and reap further benefits from the nuclear deal,” Zarif said.

Zarif further maintained that Iranian youth are highly skilled in various fields of ICT, pharmaceuticals and nuclear sciences which have been achieved through domestic knowledge and expertise.

The Iranian top diplomat will wrap up his stay in Sweden on Wed. and make a visit to Latvia as the fourth and last leg of his Eastern European tour.
