Iran Seeks Reasonable Relations With Europe

A senior lawmaker said Iran has always been looking for reasonable relations with European countries based on mutual respect.
Chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi made the statement in a meeting with visiting former Spanish foreign minister, Miguel Angel Moratinos, on Tuesday.
But there were flaws in relations during past years, which Boroujerdi said was a result of obstacles created by the US and its influence on European countries, IRNA reported.
"The US sanctions on Iran were not only against the country and Iranian companies, but also against the West, especially European countries that have been good trading partners of Iran," he said.
In view of the huge potentials for cooperation, removal of sanctions on Iran would help accelerate the development of ties, the lawmaker said.
"Majlis is ready for closer cooperation with the Spanish Parliament," he said.
Moratinos said promoting cooperation with Iran is on the agenda of the Spanish government and the parliament has plans to improve ties.
"Spain is willing to cooperate with Iran in the fields of energy, agriculture, water treatment, transportation and road construction," he said.
Moratinos hoped that the full implementation of the nuclear deal, reached between Iran and the world powers last July, would help pave the way for stronger mutual cooperation and facilitate Iran's international trade.
