German Ambassador to Tehran Michael Freiherr von Ungern-Sternberg described his country as Iran’s biggest economic and trade partner.
“Germany is the biggest European partner of Iran in the field of economy,” the German envoy said in a meeting with Khorasan Razavi governor general in the city of Mashhad on Tuesday.
He noted that Germany is seriously monitoring the economic and industrial activities in Iran, and said, “The German embassy in Tehran has good relations with the chamber of commerce; we have a joint Iran-Germany Chamber of Commerce that I think is the only independent chamber in Iran.”
Ungern-Sternberg voiced his country’s willingness to help the city of Mashhad launch its underground system, and said, “A German metro operating firm which has a representative office in Tehran can help Mashhad launch its underground system… .”
In November, Iran’s Ambassador to Germany Ali Majedi vowed to do his best to pave the way for the rapid growth of Tehran-Berlin economic relations to turn the European nation into Iran’s top economic partner.
