A Romanian official said Bucharest backs any agreement between Iran and the six major powers over Tehran's nuclear program.

In a meeting with Ambassador to Romania Hamid Moayyer in Bucharest on Thursday, Teodor Melescanu, an advisor to the Romanian prime minister, touched on the progress made in Iran after the 1979 Islamic Revolution and said, "Bucharest as an EU member supports any efforts to help secure an agreement between Iran and the P5+1(the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany)," IRNA reported. On efforts to boost ties with Iran in various fields, particularly in the economic sector, he referred to the revival of the Bucharest-Tehran joint economic committee in the near future as a critical factor which can help increase bilateral relations and mutual cooperation.  

Melescanu pointed to an exclusive exhibition of Romanian products recently held in Iran and exchange of visits between the two countries' high-ranking officials to evaluate the potential in each country as significant ways to help pave the way for expansion of bilateral cooperation and said, "Romania and Iran have always been enjoying good relations over the years."

The ambassador, for his part, described Tehran-Bucharest relations as positive and called for expansion of mutual cooperation, particularly in the economic sphere, through exchange of economic delegations between the two states.
