Indian Minister of External Affairs Subrahmanyam Jaishankar expressed hope for expansion of long-term relations between Tehran and New Delhi in various sectors. 
In a phone conversation with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, Jaishankar applauded current levels of ties between the two nations and stated that Iran-India relations could further develop and improve in different areas, IRNA reported.   
The top diplomat also pointed to the upcoming meeting of the joint economic cooperation commission between the two countries and called for the formulation of a plan to advance main agendas to boost bilateral relations. 
In addition, he said, “We’ve always demonstrated support for efforts to find a solution to Iran’s nuclear issue and this support will remain in place in the future.” 
Iran and world powers have been discussing the revival of the 2015 nuclear accord for the past few months, so far to no avail. 
Amir-Abdollahian in turn mentioned his recent trip to India and said the Iranian government was prepared to act on the agreements reached between the two nations during his visit. 
“We’re re ready to host the new round of the joint commission on economic cooperation,” the top diplomat said. 
The minister also thanked the Indian government for their efforts to help restore the nuclear deal.
