TEHRAN - A delegation of Greek traders, businessmen, and industrialist will travel to Iran in the near future, Iranian Ambassador to Greece Behnam Behrouz said on Tuesday.
Greek Deputy Prime Minister Evangelos Venizelos will lead the delegation, ISNA quoted Behrouz as saying.
Iran and Greece have vast potential to boost their economic relations, especially in the fields of shipping, tourism, and banking, Behrouz added.
He expressed hope that the Greek delegation would travel to Iran before the end of the current Iranian calendar year (March 20).
Iran and the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - Russia, China, the US, France, Britain - plus Germany inked the nuclear accord in the Swiss city of Geneva on November 24, 2013. The two sides started implementing the agreement on January 20.
Under the Geneva deal, the six countries undertook to provide Iran with some sanctions relief in exchange for the Islamic Republic agreeing to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities, including a voluntary suspension of its 20-percent uranium enrichment program.
Following the Geneva deal, several trade delegations from different countries have announced their readiness to establish and boost ties with Iran.
