Finland is looking to strengthen its trade ties with Iran

The rotating presidency of the European Union by Finland, according to Vail Saknari, is an opportunity to boost trade and economic cooperation between Iran and Finland.

Finland believes that economic cooperation between the two countries will grow, and we are profoundly concerned about the US withdrawal from the JCPOA as well as the impact on the Iranian people’s life and the escalation of tensions.

Finland’s role as President of the European Union, on the other hand, will be beneficial in easing tensions.

“There are prospects and foundations for bilateral collaboration, such as in the fields of ICT, science, and academic cooperation between the two countries”, the Finnish minister remarked, “and the possibility of strengthening bilateral ties through polytechnical cooperation between Iran and Finland is bright.”
