S Korean trade delegations to visit Tehran

SEOUL, Aug. 14 (MNA) – Two high-ranking trade and economy delegations of South Korea are scheduled to visit Tehran late in August.

Iran’s embassy in Seoul announced that two delegations of South Korean investors and traders will travel to Iran later this month.

The statement says that the first delegation will be headed by South Korean Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Yoo Il Ho and the second will be headed by Deputy Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy.

Following Iran-Sextet Vienna agreement of July 14 and willingness of European and Asian countries to consider ways to expand cooperation with Iran, many foreign delegations have travelled to Tehran in a race for a better share of Iran’s vast market.

Finding common grounds for economic and trade cooperation development between the two countries as well as considering projects for joint investment are among goals of these visiting groups.

Also, Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se is to visit Iran in future after necessary coordination.

South Korea has always tried to keep its relations with Iran at a logical level, even during imposed and unfair sanctions and pressures of western countries against Iran.

This country is trying to develop its relations with Iran and is trying to connect its companies with Iran's infra-structures plans.

Prior to trip to Iran, Yoo Il Ho met with Iran’s Ambassador to South Korea Hossein Taherian, on Thursday, and mulled over the possible opportunities to be examined in Tehran.

 During the meeting, the Korean official affirmed that his country is not going to lag behind the other commercial partners of Islamic Republic.
