He added: “Cementing ties with East Asian countries, including Vietnam is very important to Iran. Vietnam can act as a centre for developing Iran’s economic activities in East Asia and Iran can be a gate for Vietnam to access a 400-million market”.
“After the JCPOA and the lift of sanctions, there is a good opportunity for development of economic relations between the two countries and tapping these opportunities requires cemented banking relations,” he continued.
Referring to the meeting between him and his Vietnamese counterpart as an indicator of political determination, Dr Rouhani added: “Iranian nation is willing to develop ties with persistent and friend nation of Vietnam and there are ample opportunities between the two countries that should be used”.
He also said that Iran is ready to provide Vietnam with energy, steel, construction materials and technical and engineering services for constructing power plants and roads, stressing more cooperation between the private sectors of both countries.
Dr Rouhani also said that Iran and Vietnam should promote relations in academic fields.
In the meeting, the Prime Minister of Vietnam, Nguyễn Xuân Phúc said: “The two countries have ample opportunities to develop ties and we should use these opportunities to the benefit of the two nations”.
“We seek preferential trade, and eventually free trade with Iran,” he added, saying: “I will order all ministries and organisations to boost trade with Iran to over $2 billion”.
