TEHRAN – Algerian Ambassador to Tehran Abdel Moneim Ahryz has said that Iranian firms are welcome in Algeria.

Ahryz said his country has opened its markets to the Islamic Republic.

“Businesspeople, entrepreneurs and investors have directed their efforts in recent years to support and encourage the officials of the two countries to expand their economic ties,” Ahryz said in an interview with IRNA published on Tuesday.

The Algerian ambassador said that Iran and Algeria had close ties even before the JPCOA – a nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers – was signed.

The two sides have been able to develop their ties during the past ten years, he said.

Ahryz further said that there are great opportunities in various fields, especially economy, to strengthen ties between Iran and Algeria.

The ambassador also said the two countries enjoy exemplary security and stability as well as strategic positions in their regions and “this can help the expansion of ties between Iran and Algeria.”

Elsewhere in his remarks, Ahryz emphasized that Algeria would always support the Syrian and Yemeni people and believes that the conflicts in the two countries should be resolved through dialogue.
