“The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to attract and cooperate in investment and transfer of technology and the private sectors of the two countries should be encouraged to cooperate more,” said President in a meeting with Prime Minister Stefan Löfven that was held on Wednesday local time on the sidelines of the 71st UN General Assembly in New York.

He also highlighted banking relations as prerequisite to new economic relations between the two countries and said: “Developing banking cooperation and removing obstacles are a part of commitments stated in the JCPOA and the associated resolution in UN Security Council”.

“We are willing to cooperate with European banks, especially Swedish banks,” said President Rouhani mentioning that Iran has started banking cooperation with some countries.

Referring to Sweden’s membership in UNSC, he said: “Sweden’s presence in Security Council can be beneficial in resolving complicated international issues”.

On Yemen and Syria, Dr Rouhani said: “Currently, the people of these two countries are going through hard times and need medical and food aid and continuous bombardment has destroyed Yemen’s infrastructures”.

“It is the same case in Syria. Terrorist groups have endangered the people of this country and destroyed the infrastructures”.

President Rouhani also underscored that economic development is one of the most important bases for stability in the region and rooting out terrorism.

At the same meeting, Prime Minister of Sweden Stefan Löfven said that a big economic delegation will visit Tehran in coming months, adding: “Sweden is willing to cement its relations with Iran in all fields, especially economy”.

“I am looking forward to visiting Iran,” said Prime Minister Löfven, mentioning good relations between the two countries in different fields.

Stressing that terrorism should be uprooted, he said: “Attacks in recent years have turned Syria and Yemen into a wreckage and harmed the people in these countries”.

“We should all join hands to once again return peace to Syria and Yemen and this is possible through following political solutions”.
