Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has called on the Swedish investors to cooperate with Iran in its development projects.
“I encourage everyone to cooperate with Iran,” Mehr news agency quoted Zarif as saying at a joint economic meeting between Iran and Sweden in Stockholm.
Zarif added that Iran is a safe country and investors cannot find a country safer than Iran for investment.
Minister Zarif is heading an economic and political delegation during his ongoing European tour aimed at promoting trade and economic opportunities.
The foreign minister has already visited Poland and Finland as part of his tour kicked off May 29. Latvia will be the final destinations of the delegation.
So far, the business delegation accompanying Zarif during his tour has signed documents on cooperation with Polish and Finnish companies worth up to $1.2 billion.
Members of the Iranian business delegation attended dozens of business to business (b2b) meetings in Helsinki and Warsaw to discuss ways for the expansion of trade ties.
