Iran has offered Lithuania to open their respective embassies in Vilnius and Tehran to step up economic and political cooperation, visiting Iranian Vice President Massoumeh Ebtekar said in an interview with BNS Lithuania on Friday.
“One of the issues that our ambassador is pursuing and our Foreign Ministry is very interested in is the opening of embassies in Tehran and here,” the vice president said.
“We have also an economic agreement which is pending and we hope that that will be expedited and that we can sign the economic agreement with Lithuania as soon as possible.”
Lithuania now maintains diplomatic relations with Iran through the embassy in Turkey and Iran does that through its embassy in Poland, Riga-based monthly newspaper The Baltic Times reported on its website on Sunday.
According to the Iranian vice president, the embassy opening and the bilateral economic agreement would help expand trade relations and step up tourism.
