Iran's Industry, Mines and Trade Mohammad Reza Nematzadeh has called on Japan for the expansion of bilateral ties particularly in technical and trade spheres.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran gives support for the long-term economic activities and also the investments of Japanese companies in the country," Iranian official IRNA news agency quoted Nematzadeh as saying at a meeting with Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida in Tehran Oct. 13.
Nematzadeh further called for the expansion of bilateral ties between Tehran and Tokyo particularly in engineering and technical spheres.
"The expansion of trade ties with Iran will create a strong market for Japanese companies and Iranian products should be supplied in Japanese market," he added.
" We can provide Japanese companies with data as Iran has decided on its trade and economic priorities for the next 10 years," he added.
Iran and the P5+1 (the US, the UK, France, Russia, China and Germany) reached a deal on July 14, curbing Tehran 's nuclear program in return for lifting economic sanctions.
Following the deal various delegations from the EU as well as Tehran 's former Asian trade partners have paid several visits to resume their economic activities in the Islamic Republic.
