TEHRAN, July 11 (MNA) – Belgium’s ambassador to Tehran underlined the expansion of long–term bilateral economic ties between the two countries expressing that the future relations would be promising.

In his meet with Iran’s head of the Chamber of Commerce, Industries, and Mines Mohammad Nahavandian, the Belgian envoy stipulated that, “there were no limitations for expanding ties between Iran and Belgium.”


Meanwhile, Nahavandian stated that new steps should be taken in Iran’s relations with European countries.


“It has been proven that mixing political and economic affairs is wrong and I hope that new opportunities to strengthen ties are created,” he added.


Elsewhere he stated that Iran is currently in a phase of transferring all affairs to the private sector, and the Europeans should take this opportunity seriously because such prospects might not be available in the future.


Nahavandian also referred to the energy crisis and the importance of energy in the future.


He said, “the world needs the energy resources of the Middle East, therefore the culture and rights of the people of this region should be respected.”


Hervé Goyens, for his part, pointed out that Belgium is the world’s ninth exporter and importer and stated that investment in Belgium is very high and last year approximately $400 billion was invested in that country.
