Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 4
By Khalid Kazimov - Trend:
Iranian economy ministry and a Danish bank have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on banking ties, Iranian foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said.
Addressing a joint press conference with Denmark's Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen in Tehran, Zarif called on Denmark to expand bilateral ties with Iran in various fields of culture, education, human rights and trades, ISNA news agency reported Jan. 4.
Speaking about terrorism and extremism Zarif added that combating the drug trafficking is also a proper field for cooperation between the two states.
He further added that the removal of international sanctions against Tehran in the coming days, will pave the way for expansion of ties between Iran and Denmark.
According to Zarif the Danish foreign minister who is heading a political and economic delegation is expected to meet a number of Iranian ministers and officials to discuss cooperation in Iran.
Iran expects the international sanctions imposed by the West on its financial and industrial sectors to be lifted in early 2016, as it is adhering to the terms of a milestone nuclear accord inked between Tehran and the world powers in July.
