President said that the post-sanctions atmosphere has created new economic conditions between two countries, called for the promotion of bilateral relations.

Dr.Rouhani said: “The deepening of our relations with Western countries and the European Union can be a big step towards the reinforcement of regional security.”

Rouhani further referred to the issue of terrorism as a phenomenon whose repercussions - such as the recent flock of refugees to Europe - are not limited to a particular place.

This is what makes the reinforcement of relations and cooperation between Iran and Europe more important than ever, Dr.Rouhani added, urging global collaborations to fight terrorism throughout the world.

Lofven, for his part, referred to terrorism as a problem threatening the entire world, noting, “Fighting against terrorism requires joint efforts, and Sweden is interested in cooperating with Iran in this area.”

He also voiced Sweden’s willingness to expand its industrial and trade ties with Iran as an important and influential country in the region.

The Swedish minister of industry is scheduled to pay an official visit to Tehran in the near future, and this can be a good starting point for increased economic cooperation between the two sides, he added.
