Tehran, Turkish ambassador to Iran stressed that if some of the obstacles imposed by Iran were to be removed, Turkish businessmen and investors would be keen to come to Iran.
'The obstacles facing Turkish investors, which are often related to Iran's regulations, should be resolved,' Derya Ors said on Saturday at a meeting with Tehran's governor.
