On Wednesday, Iran-Russia Industrial Forum was held at INNOPROM, during which delegations from Iran and representatives of the Government of Sverdlovsk Region and the Ural Chamber of Commerce and Industry discussed the prospect of bilateral industrial cooperation, according to the fair’s website.
In a paper released by INNOPROM, Sorena Sattari has said, “A powerful political and economic center located close to Iran, Russia as a nation that is friendly to us provided Iran with unprecedented opportunities for the development of political and economic relations over the past decades.”
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is using its capabilities to foster constructive and dynamic cooperation at this global forum. And our presence here which follows the initiative of the Russian authorities attests to our intentions,” he added.
