Tehran, Prague to Benefit From AgreementsTehran, Prague to Benefit From Agreements

Iran and the Czech Republic have high potential for expanding economic and commercial ties by implementing the agreements signed by the two states to the benefit of both nations, a deputy parliament speaker said.

In a meeting with First Vice President of Czech Senate Premysl Sobotka in Tehran on Sunday, Masoud Pezeshkian also stressed the significance of boosting parliamentarian relations between the two countries, IRNA reported.

He called for regular interactions between Iranian and Czech parliaments and said this can positively impact and accelerate friendly ties between the countries.

"Islamic Republic of Iran welcomes any exchange of experience and expansion of relations with the Czech Republic at various levels," he said.

Pezeshkian pointed to the considerable economic capacities and technical and scientific achievements of the two nations and said "win-win trade" between the two sides will pave the way for sustainable and long-lasting relations.

"Agriculture, scientific projects, manufacture of parts, tourism, new energies and traditional medicine are among areas in which the countries can collaborate," the Iranian lawmaker said, adding that the Majlis is ready to fully support expansion of such cooperation. Sobotka pointed to the longstanding and positive collaboration between Tehran and Prague in the past and said this is a perfect ground for starting a new era in mutual ties.

"Parliaments play an important role in facilitating relations between countries and this trip aims to do the same," he said.

Western sanctions related to Tehran's nuclear program had made it difficult for Iran to maintain normal relations with many countries, "but in addition to rebuilding the previous ties, now that the sanctions are lifted [under last year's nuclear deal between Iran and the world powers], we need to take the relations to a higher level," he said.

Sobotka named car manufacturing, decorative glass industries, clean energies and industrial agriculture among the main areas of priority in working with Iran.
