President Hassan Rouhani said: “Under the new circumstances and following the Vienna agreement, Tehran welcomes the presence of foreign investors and entrepreneurs in the country, and Spanish companies can enter the Iranian market as well.”

Dr.Rouhani made the remarks in a meeting with Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo in Tehran on Monday.

President expressing hope Tehran-Madrid cooperation further expands, said: “There exists great economic, industrial, scientific and cultural potential in Iran.

Iran also enjoys various potentialities in the areas of energy, oil and natural gas, downstream industries, infrastructure, and academic matters as well as cooperation between research and tourist centers, said the president, noted that the presence of Spanish investors and entrepreneurs in Iran can give fresh impetus to cooperation between the private sectors of both sides.

President Rouhani also said he would like to see a direct air route be established between Tehran and Madrid.

President pointed to the nukes, saying, “Nuclear weapons have never ensured security for countries.”

He then said Iran stands ready to work closely with Spain at regional and international levels, including in the war on terrorism.

“Today, the Middle East region is facing the major scourge of extremism, violence and terrorism, but this scourge will never stay limited to a single region or a single territory,” said President Rouhani.

He urged all countries to join a global campaign against terror.

The visiting Spanish foreign minister, for his part, said that he was carrying the friendship message of the Spanish King and prime minister for the Iranian government and nation.

He expressed hope the sanctions imposed on Iran will be lifted as soon as possible.

Jose Manuel Garcia noted the two countries have common ground when it comes to dealing with terrorism, stressing the need to work out political and peaceful solutions to regional crises, including the conflict in Syria.

Spanish firms are eager to set up shop in Iran, the foreign minister underscored.

He said Spain can serve as a conduit for the transfer of Iran’s natural gas to Europe, and expressed hope the establishment of a joint Iran-Spain cooperation commission will see the full existing potential for mutual cooperation be tapped.
