Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called for efforts to expand cooperation between Tehran and Nicosia in such areas as tourism, academic programs and new technologies. In a meeting with President of the Cypriot House of Representatives Demetris Syllouris in Tehran on Monday, Zarif hailed the growing political and trade ties between Iran and Cyprus, Tasnim News Agency reported. He hoped that the two nations would promote cooperation in the exchange of tourists, science and advanced technologies. The Cypriot official voiced the European country's readiness to enhance cooperation with Iran at bilateral and international levels. There has been growing enthusiasm for trade ties with Iran since Tehran and major powers in July 2015 reached a deal on Tehran's nuclear program and started implementing it on January 16. The deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, terminated nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran.
