The private sectors in Sri Lanka and Iran should cooperate closely for the implementation of joint projects following the lifting of nuclear-related sanctions on Tehran, says the prime minister of the Indian Ocean country.  
“Positive developments have taken place in Sri Lanka’s economy. The private sector has become very active here, and we are seeking to set up meetings with Iran’s private sector,” Ranil Wickremesinghe told Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani in Colombo on Thursday. 
The prime minister said his country is keen to enhance trade ties with the Islamic Republic in various areas.
