Tehran and Amsterdam plan to promote trade ties based on a defined road map observed Iran’s ambassador to the Netherlands while highlighting the significance of relations between the two countries.
Alireza Jahangiri, who was speaking at Erasmus University in Rotterdam, added that grounds are prepared for closer cooperation between the Islamic Republic and the Netherlands in many fields, Tasnim News Agency reported.
Therefore, he noted, the two countries have devised a roadmap to promote relations.
“Given the advantages of doing business with the Islamic Republic of Iran, European countries have taken huge steps to boost economic cooperation with Iran over the past two years, especially following the nuclear deal,” he noted.
Earlier last month, Jahangiri and president of the Netherlands’ central bank (De Nederlandsche Bank), Klaas Knot, in a meeting in The Hague discussed ways to boost banking interactions between the two nations.
The talks come against the backdrop of a new wave of interest in ties with Iran after Tehran and the P5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France plus Germany) agreed on the text of a comprehensive 159-page deal on Tehran’s nuclear program on July 14, 2015 which went into force on January 16.
The comprehensive nuclear deal, known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), terminated all nuclear-related sanctions on Iran.
