TEHRAN – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday that Iran and Malaysia have always had “good relations” and Tehran has no limit to expand ties with Kuala Lumpur.

“Relations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Malaysia have been good and forward moving from a historical point of view and the Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to expand all-out cooperation with Malaysia,” he said during a meeting with Malaysian Foreign Minister Anifah Aman in Tehran.

Zarif said that many opportunities have been created after the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, commonly called nuclear deal, to expand economic relations.

He said that there are capacities in the two countries to expand ties in areas of tourism and oil and gas industry.

For his part, Aman called for expansion of ties between the two countries in various spheres, especially economy.

Iran and the 5+1 group - the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia plus Germany - finalized the text of the JCPOA in Vienna in July 2015. The deal went into effect in January 2016.
