TEHRAN- Austrian Ambassador to Tehran Stefan Scholz said his country supports expansion of economic and industrial relations with Iran.

Making the remarks in a meeting with Mansour Moazami, the head of Industrial Development and Revolution Organization (IDRO) of Iran, at the place of IDRO in Tehran on Sunday, the envoy put emphasis on the more progress of joint projects between the two countries, IDRO published on its official website.

“Austrian government sees no problem in continuing trade ties with the Iranian sides and when it comes to the Austrian companies some strategies and resolutions should be presented so that the two sides can continue cooperation despite the U.S. sanctions”, Scholz further noted.

Moazami for his part stressed the role that Austria, which currently holds the presidency of the Council of the European Union, can play to strengthen EU ties with Iran and called for more tangible and flexible measures in this due.

In early July, Iran and Austria signed four cooperation documents on water resources management, renewable energy, transport, and mining.

The documents were signed as President Rouhani was on a three-day tour of Europe which took him to Switzerland and Austria.

The documents were signed at the presence of Rouhani and his Austrian counterpart Alexander Van der Bellen.
