Poland ready to expand economic, agriculture ties with Iran

WARSAW, May 31 (MNA) – Beata Szydło, Prime Minister of Poland, expressed her satisfaction over the massive business delegation accompanying FM Zarif, noting her country’s readiness to expand cooperation with Iran in various areas of trade and agriculture.  

Iranian Foreign Minster Mohammad Javad Zarif met with Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydło on Monday evening, where the two sides highlighted the need for further bilateral cooperation.

“The massive business delegation comprised of major Iranian companies that is accompanying me on this visit is an indication of the significance and profitability of economic cooperation for the two countries’ private sectors,” Zarif said.

Participation in nanotechnology, biotechnology and telecommunications projects; cooperation in dairy production and distributing the produce to the $400 million market of the region around Iran; cooperation in the field of transport; as well as Poland’s investment in automobile manufacturing in Iran were, according to Zarif, among the various possible areas for cooperation between Tehran and Warsaw.

“If banking relations are established and the investment insurance is activated, the trade agreements worth around $500 million that were signed by the two countries today on the sideline of the economic forum will take effect very quickly,” Zarif said.

The Polish prime minister, for her part, maintained that her country would never forget Iranians’ hospitality in welcoming Polish refugees during the World War II, and stressed Poland’s readiness to further expand bilateral relations with the Islamic Republic.

“Issues such as energy supply security, absorption of advanced technology and scientific cooperation are of high significance and the priority for Poland,” she said.

Zarif wrapped up his visit to Warsaw as the first leg of his European tour on Monday and arrived in the Finnish capital early Tuesday morning to hold talks with senior Finnish officals on bilateral and regional issues.
