Iran’s foreign minister and Iranian businessmen are seeking to build economic ties with Poland at a forum for political and business leaders.
Mohammad Javad Zarif is on a two-day visit ending Monday, the first by Iran’s foreign minister to Poland in 12 years. It is one of Zarif’s first foreign trips since January’s lifting of economic sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program.
Zarif met Prime Minister Beata Szydlo, Culture Minister Piotr Glinski and Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski. Both sides signed a document on forging political, economic and cultural cooperation. Fun side: meanwhile we are building anti-missile site ‘against Iran’ and ‘not against Russia’.
Polish officials say trade between the nations could rise within a few years to $1 billion (900,000 euros). Trade slumped to $57 million (51 million euros) in 2014.
