Iran’s envoy: British companies call for further economic ties

Iran’s Ambassador to London, Hamid Baeidinejad, said British companies are interested in doing business with Iran and are calling for expansion of economic ties.

Baeidinejad made the remarks during the annual assembly of Iran and Britain Chambers of Commerce, which was held in Britain’s Parliament on Friday, IRNA reported. 

Baeidinejad said representatives of over 150 manufacturing, business and investment companies attended the event.

He further said that the participants believed the current level of economic relations between the two countries is insufficient and needs to increase.

The meeting was held despite the recent US threats against Iran’s nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Earlier this month, US President Donald Trump said he would not be certifying Iran’s compliance with the terms of the JCPOA under a domestic American law, kicking a decision to Congress on whether to restore sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

However, following Trumps’ remarks, the European Union, Russia and China have reaffirmed their commitment to the deal.
