Larijani: Tehran, Zagreb should use post-JCPOA atmosphere to boost ties

Iran and Croatia should use all the possibilities provided by the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action to widen the prospect of their economic cooperation, says Iran parliament speaker, IRNA reported.

Ali Larijani on Wednesday told the visiting Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović that it is time for Iran and Croatia to enhance the level of their economic relations.

'The two countries should exploit all the potential to enhance economic and trade ties,' Larijani said.

Iran's parliament speaker named development of roads and rail transportation, marine industries and energy as sectors open to foreign investments.

'Iranian people have a positive view about Croatia and this also makes it possible for the two countries to expand ties in tourism and hoteling industry sectors,' Larijani said.

The Croatian President, on her part, blamed the low level of trade between the two countries on sanctions against the Islamic Republic and the lack of joint commissions.

She expressed hope that the two countries could establish good ties in economic and cultural spheres.

'Croatia has good experience in railroad development, shipbuilding, energy, food industries, transportation and tourism,' she said.

Croatian President arrived in the Iranian capital on Tuesday afternoon.

A large economic delegation is accompanying the Croatian official during her three-day stay in the Islamic Republic.
