“Despite the ongoing chaos in the Middle East, Iran is still a calm, safe country,” Iranian lawmaker Kazem Jalali stated in a Monday meeting with Sergei Buldiliak, Ukraine’s ambassador to Tehran.
Therefore, Jalali added, we expect international investment in Iran to boost the country’s export-based production, as well as the transfer of technical knowledge.
According to a Farsi report by ICANA, the Iranian MP referred to energy industry as an appropriate area for bilateral cooperation between Iran and Ukraine, and emphasized the need to further the talks in this regard.
Buldiliak, for his part, stressed that “by collaborating with Iran in the field of energy, Ukraine will contribute to the stability and security of its domestic energy section.”
“In Ukraine, the aerospace industry, and the space, shipbuilding and helicopter manufacturing technologies have high capacities for extended cooperation with Iran.”
“Ukraine regards Iran as a friend,” he stated. “We are hopeful about development of our bilateral relations with this country.”
He also noted that Ukraine would be glad to receive Ali Larijani, the speaker of Iran’s Parliament.
