Lifting of sanctions to expand Iran-Azerbaijan economic relations
Tehran, Iran, July 27
By Temkin Jafarov - Trend:
The economic relations between Azerbaijan and Iran will expand in the near future, Iranian ambassador to Azerbaijan Mohsen Pak Ayeen told Trend July 27.
"After the West's sanctions are lifted, Iran will continue developing rapidly as it was before their imposition," he said.
The ambassador said that the countries with strong economy are interested in the development of relations with Iran.
"The visit of German vice-chancellor with a delegation consisting of 100 people to Iran last week can be cited as an example," he said. "Removing of unnecessary barriers creates a basis for strengthening the relations among Iran and all world's countries, especially with friendly and fraternal Azerbaijan."
The diplomat said in the near future the relations between Baku and Tehran will develop in the economic sphere.
"The UN Security Council's recent resolution demonstrates the determination of the world's countries to participate in the economic programs in Iran," he said. "We consider this achievement as the success of all independent countries, in particular neighboring countries."
Stressing the importance of resolving the conflicts in the region, the ambassador said that the agreement reached between Iran and "Six" international mediators allows using the potential of Iran in the settlement of regional conflicts, as well as in the fight against the Islamic State and other terrorist organizations.
He called the agreement reached between Iran and "Six" international mediators as the success of diplomacy.
"Cancelling of UN Security Council's six resolutions against Iran and removing of Tehran's peaceful nuclear program from the UN Chapter VII are the most significant achievements reached in the negotiations in Vienna," he said.
