President: Iran, Russia to boost trade exchanges to $10 billion
Tehran and Moscow intend to increase the volume of their annual trade exchanges to 10 billion dollars, President Hassan Rouhani says.
President Rouhani made the remarks Tuesday evening during a dinner banquet with Iranian nationals living in Russia.
“It takes several years for the people to know all the aspects of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,” he said, referring to the nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers.
The Iranian president said that after the implementation of the nuclear deal, except for the banking issue, all the goals followed by Iran have been achieved.
The dinner banquet, which took place at a Moscow hotel, was also attended by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Chief of Staff of Iranian President’s Office Mohammad Nahavandian, and Iran’s Ambassador to Moscow Mehdi Sanaei.
President Rouhani heading a high-ranking delegation was in Moscow on Monday and Tuesday at a formal invitation by his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.
