The top Danish diplomat made the comments on Tuesday in Tehran at a gathering on the promotion of trade between the two countries, IRNA reported.
Jensen made reference to the decades-long diplomatic relations between the two sides, noting that Denmark has had a history of cooperation with Iran in different areas, including the construction of a thousand kilometers of railway to connect the Persian Gulf in the south to the Caspian Sea in the north.
Iranian media reports said Monday that delegates from Danish shipping giants were in Tehran for maritime cooperation and help in areas of oil, gas and petrochemicals.
Meanwhile, Iranian Energy Minister Hamid Chitchian has spoken of an offer by Denmark to develop renewable energy industry in Iran and build a wind-turbine manufacturing factory in the country.
Chitchian further said the Danish delegation meeting sought to find ways of investing in Iranian water and power industries.
He also spoke of a ‘very good understanding’ between the two sides of cooperation in different sectors of renewable energy.
Denmark exports an annual USD 213 million worth of goods and services to Iran and imports just over 10 million dollars worth of Iranian commodities, according to IRNA.
