EghtesadOnline: Slovakian Ambassador to Iran Luber Mirgelian said opening of credit line worth 100 million euros during recent Tehran visit of his country’s officials indicates Slovakia's backing to investment in Iran.
In a meeting with Head of Iran-Slovakia Parliamentary Group Mehdi Farshadan on Sunday, the ambassador evaluated bilateral ties as positive, hoping that relations would further improve following the removal of sanctions and settlement of banking problems, IRNA reported.
Referring to the Islamic Republic’s role in the region, he welcomed augmentation of diplomatic shuttles, particularly further communications between the two countries’ parliamentary friendship groups.
Farshadan, for his part, referred to good ties between Iran and Slovakia, saying that excellent bilateral relations since the country’s independence are an appropriate ground for bolstering ties in various domains.
He also described removal of impediments such as facilitating visa issuance as a major contributor to boosting bilateral ties.
Expansion of mutual cooperation, especially in post-JCPOA era, is indicative of both sides’ good will for promoting ties, he said.
Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is the official title of the nuclear deal reached between Iran and world major powers in July 2015.
He also voiced Iran’s Majlis support to any move in line with using existing capacities for strengthening friendly cooperation.
