Romania's Foreign Minister Lazar Comanescu has called for cooperation with Iran in economic and political grounds. Cooperation between Iran and Romania can contribute to the regional stability and security, Lazar Comanescu told reporters during a joint press conference with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif in Tehran. "We need to make efforts in order to establish stability in the region," Comanescu added. The Romanian minister went on to speak about economic cooperation with Iran and vowed to lay the ground for holding a session of a joint economic commission of Iran and Romania in Bucharest.
Earlier Iran and Romania announced their plan to organize a joint economic commission. The commission will be tasked with preparing a roadmap for the expansion of economic cooperation between the two countries. Saying that there are various fields for cooperation between Tehran and Bucharest, Comanescu added that Iran and Romania have agreed to cooperate in the fields of transport, agricultural, energy and tourism. He further said that the nuclear deal between Iran and the world powers has paved the way for cooperation and the expansion of bilateral ties.
"We want to resume bilateral ties," Comanescu concluded.
Over the past decade in a bid to curb Iran's nuclear program, the international community took measures against Tehran, including restrictions imposed on the country's financial system, as well as industry, which have had a catastrophic impact on Iranians' economic situation and life
Following the long-awaited nuclear deal clinched between Tehran and the world major powers most of the international sanctions against Tehran were lifted on Jan. 16.
