Baku, Azerbaijan, Aug. 24
By Umid Niayesh - Trend:
British Foreign Secretary Phillip Hammond and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani discussed the post-sanctions era in Tehran.
According to a report released by Iranian president's official website on Aug. 24, Rouhani said that the sides (P5+1 including the US, UK, France, China, Russia and Germany) would find out in the future that interaction with Iran was the best way chosen.
Iran and P5+1 reached a comprehensive nuclear deal on July 14, which paves the way for elimination of sanctions on Iran by the end of year.
Rouhani added that the nuclear agreement creates a situation that can be used for developing Iran-UK relations in all spheres.
Noting the re-opening of Iran and UK's embassies in London and Tehran on Sunday, the Iranian president said that the sides' officials should repair relations and increase them to an acceptable level.
He said Iran would remain obliged to its commitments based on the agreement completely, "because as we have said repeatedly, Iran has not been pursuing a nuclear bomb".
Mentioning the crisis in Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Afghanistan, Rouhani said, " we can find a solution to bring the stability to the region by interaction and negotiations".
"There are numerous projects in Iran, including the railways, roads energy, aviation, industry, echology, etc. that Britain companies can invest in and develop them."
