He also said: "JCPOA removed these obstacles and this is why we consider it a win-win agreement. JCPOA created a good base for developing Iran's relations with friend countries".

Stating that Iran and Spain must make the best use of the opportunities provided by the JCPOA to benefit both nations, he said: "Spain has good opportunities to cooperate with Iran in various fields of industry, transportation and energy, as well as tourism and make investment".

At the same meeting, the President of the Senate of Spain, Pío García-Escudero Márquez also delivered the Spanish king's message of congratulations over Dr Rouhani re-election and said: "The result of recent elections in Iran indicates that your work and policies, as well as your moderate policy in the past four years have been fruitful".
