Irish Delegations to Visit Iran: Envoy
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Ireland is going to dispatch a number of delegations, including a big economic one, to Iran in pursuit of closer mutual cooperation, the European country’s accredited ambassador to Tehran announced.
In a Monday meeting with Iran’s Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani in Tehran, the Irish ambassador, Brendan Ward, said a “big economic delegation” from his country will travel to Iran in January 2016.
He also unveiled plans for another visit to Iran by an Irish delegation specialized in agriculture.
The Irish agriculture minister is scheduled to visit Iran soon to hold meetings with the Iranian officials in order to promote cooperation in the agricultural field, Ward noted.
He further expressed the hope that Tehran and Dublin would tap into each other’s capabilities in diverse fields.
For his part, Larijani highlighted the good grounds available in Iran for the foreign investment, saying the Irish agricultural and industrial sectors can take those opportunities.
After the conclusion of diplomatic talks between Iran and the six powers on July 14 in Vienna, foreign countries and companies are rushing to rekindle business with the Islamic Republic.
Dubbed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the deal will terminate all nuclear-related sanctions on Iran after taking effect.
