Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said that the economic relations between Iran and Serbia are at a low level, stressing that both countries can use each other's potentials in the economic sphere.
He made the remarks in a meeting with the Chairman of the Serbian Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee Zarko Obradovic in Tehran on Wednesday, according to ICANA.
Larijani said that Tehran and Belgrade can cooperate in the fields of industry, agriculture and oil and gas in order to expand economic relations.
The Serbian lawmaker pointed to bilateral relations between Iran and Serbia and hailed the high level of parliamentary and political ties.
However, the level of economic cooperation between the two countries is not good enough, he said, calling for further efforts to boost trade ties.
Iran and Serbia have recently ramped up efforts to boost bilateral relations.
In March 2018, after a gap of 27 years, direct flights between Iran and Serbia resumed, when an IranAir jet touched down at Belgrade's Nikola Tesla airport.
