The research and analysis desk of the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) has said that a number of factors such as a positive attitude by Iranians toward Germany, the quality of German products and fairer treatment of Iranians by German businessmen can contribute to closer relations between Iran and Germany.
The following is the translation of a very brief excerpt of the analysis the official news agency filed on October 17:
It seems that as a result of the positive attitude of Iranian society to Germany and the history of bilateral interaction, Germany will be better positioned to have closer political, economic and security ties with Iran in the future.
If the nearly two-year period of nuclear talks is viewed as the preliminary stage of normalization of ties between Iran and the rest of the world, Europe in particular, after the Vienna accord a new window opened, ushering in economic talks. The Iran visits by politico-economic delegations from around the world, including Europe, were the first results of the nuclear deal.
Factors such as historical background, the quality of German products and fairer treatment of Iranians by Germany businessmen suggest that the two traditional partners can secure €12 billion in annual trade after the sanctions are fully terminated.
The Iran visit of the German foreign minister and the holding of the Munich Security Conference Core Group Meeting in Tehran are good reasons that Tehran-Berlin relations have entered a third stage.
Expert views suggest that implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action within months will see political, economic and security interaction between the two countries have a huge impact on domestic, regional and international areas.
