Bright Outlook for Tehran-Helsinki Ties

Bright Outlook for Tehran-Helsinki Ties

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said a bright future awaits relations between Iran and Finland.
Zarif made the statement in a meeting with his Finnish counterpart, Timo Soini, in Helsinki on Tuesday, IRNA reported.
Pointing to Iran's comparative advantage,  a huge educated workforce and vast energy resources, Zarif hoped the removal of international sanctions will pave the way for closer collaboration between the two countries.
Sanctions were lifted as part of the July 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, which went into effect in January.
Soini said interactions of the two countries can be expanded in many domains, particularly communications and education.
In addition to discussing ways of promoting political, economic, banking and parliamentary relations, the two top diplomats reviewed the latest developments concerning the Middle East conflicts.
Zarif, heading a 60-strong delegation of mostly businessmen, arrived in Helsinki late on Monday. During his stay, he was also scheduled to meet Finnish President Sauli Niinisto, Parliament Speaker Maria Lohela and former president, Martti Ahtisaari.
Furthermore, he was also scheduled to address a Finnish-Iranian business forum and a political conference on opportunities and challenges of Middle East security.
