Oslo Keen to Revive Tehran Ties

Norway's Minister of Foreign Affairs Borge Brende hailed the constructive role Iran plays in the Middle East and expressed Oslo's willingness to promote ties with Tehran in all fields.

Brende welcomed the latest developments in bilateral relations and voiced Norwegian companies' keenness to restore their past cooperation with Tehran.

He made the statements in a Wednesday meeting with Deputy Foreign Minister for American and European Affairs Majid Takht-Ravanchi who was in Norway to attend the sixth round of talks between the two countries, Tasnim News Agency reported.

Takht-Ravanchi referred to the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, whose implementation started in mid-January, and stressed that the atmosphere created after the deal has set the stage for expansion of Iran's ties with European states, including Norway.

He pointed to opportunities for mutual cooperation in such fields as fishery, oil and gas, renewable energies, environment, banking and marine ties, and described the prospect for bilateral relations as positive.

The Iranian diplomat's visit to Norway came days after Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif held negotiations with European officials in Brussels.

In a press conference in the Belgian capital, Brussels, on Monday, Zarif said Iran and the European Union will "replace tension and unfitting relations of the past with dialogue."
