Schmid: 100 European firms to enter business talks with Iran

Secretary General of the European External Action Service Helga Schmid said that 100 European companies will enter business talks with the Iranian sides in the near future.

In a meeting with Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi, Schmid noted that it is anticipated that an appropriate framework for cooperation would be set with direct support and contribution of the EU.

She underlined that the EU is duty bound to find an efficient solution for banking transactions and trading with Iran.

Salehi, for his part, said that sticking to to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Actions (JCPOA) and at the same time suffering from sanctions is not satisfactory for Iran.

He said the EU has taken proper steps towards safeguarding Iran nuclear deal, but at current situation it is necessary to put the spotlight on the practical results of the policies declared by EU.
