Iran hopes for enhancement of economic relations with Ukraine in the light of opportunities created by the nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers.

“Given the results of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [the official name of the nuclear deal], we hope to witness development of relations between Iran and Ukraine in the economic and commercial fields,” Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told Kiev’s new ambassador in Tehran, Sergei Buldiliak, on Sunday, Press TV reported.

The officials discussed ways of reinforcing bilateral ties after the Ukrainian diplomat submitted his credentials to Zarif.

The top Iranian diplomat pointed to recent consultations with his Ukrainian counterpart, Pavlo Klimkin, on the sidelines of a meeting of the International Syria Support Group in Munich, describing them as “constructive” and hoping for development of bilateral ties in the field of culture and economy.

The Ukrainian ambassador hoped for the development of bilateral ties “within the framework of mutual respect.”

“Ukraine enjoys many potentialities in the energy sector, shipbuilding, aircraft building and manufacturing of equipment and machinery, and we hope for the mutual relations to further expand in these areas,” Buldiliak said.
