‘It’s a great moment for both our countries. Meeting with the Energy minister is a privilege to me.

I personally think it is going to be good. A lot of people thought we could do things very quickly but its always the case that it takes a bit longer to set priorities to get processes in place.

We are very encouraged by what we have seen so far, So we look forward to developing that.

I have found that when things go wrong [in Iran] people work through the problem in a calm and patient way, which I think is a great way to deal with problems.

I think there is going to be a lot of businesses to be done; We need to find the right mechanisms.’
