The sanctions lifted, the head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran traveled to Prague to talk business with Czech officials.

The Czech Foreign Ministry said on Monday the two-day visit of Iran’s vice president and nuclear chief, Ali Akbar Salehi, was to focus on developing a bilateral nuclear cooperation, AP reported. The Czechs said that would contribute to a better international control of Iran’s nuclear program.

Iran is seeking help from European nations to better its civilian program.

Last year’s landmark nuclear deal between Iran and world powers lifted international sanctions in exchange for Iran curbing its nuclear activities. Iran has denied ever seeking atomic weapons, insisting its nuclear program is for purely civilian purposes.

In Prague, Salehi is meeting the prime minister, foreign minister, industry and trade minister and the head of the nuclear watchdog.
