President Hassan Rouhani says the nuclear agreement reached between Iran and 5+1 Group should pave the way for further promotion of ties between Tehran and Europe.
“The nuclear agreement should mark [Iran’s] better cooperation with Europe,” President Rouhani said in a meeting with visiting French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius in Tehran on Wednesday.

The President said that Iran-France cooperation over the Vienna agreement should constitute the base for future relations on the basis of mutual trust.

He said that the nuclear agreement benefits Iran, the 5+1 countries and all regional players, adding that it is a significant step in turning threats into opportunities. The President also urged all countries involved in the nuclear talks to do their utmost to “safeguard the agreement.”

“The Iranian government is steadfast in the path of [implementing] the agreement, and we will fulfill our commitments as long as the opposite side is committed to its obligations,” President Rouhani said.

Fabius, for his part, said that French companies are eager to return to the Iranian market for job-creating investment, stressing the need for Paris to make up for lost opportunities in relations with Iran.

He also invited President Rouhani to visit France on behalf of French President François Hollande.

The French foreign minister arrived in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on Wednesday for a day-long visit to hold talks with the country’s high-ranking officials.
