President Welcomes Norway’s Investment in Iranian Energy Sector

In a meeting with the Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg on Wednesday local time on the sidelines of the 71st United Nations General Assembly meeting, the Iranian President stressed the need for a new trend of ties to be established between Iran and Oslo in the post-JCPOA era, according to IRNA.

He said the nuclear agreement provided a new chance to remove shortcomings in bilateral relations caused by the unfair sanctions.

He welcomed any investment ventures by Norwegian companies in Iran’s economic sectors especially in the area of energy.

President Rouhani further stressed development of relations between the two countries in banking, scientific, cultural and technological areas.

Noting that regional problems could be addressed only through political channels, Rouhani underlined that any political consensus would lead to ultimate and rapid defeat of terrorists.

Solberg, on her part, highlighted Norway’s determination to deepen and enhance relations with Iran in the post-sanctions era.

She further said Tehran and Oslo enjoyed high potential for cooperation.
