Talking to Borna News, Ali Chegeni noted, “We are willing to cooperate on the basis of respect and mutual benefit, and we have no restrictions to develop ties.”
Increasing agricultural exchanges between Iran and India is important for both countries, said the envoy adding, “We have traditionally been a customer of Indian tea and rice, and on the other hand, in the last two years, the export of agricultural products including apple, date, saffron and kiwi to India has increased.
“Prior to the sanctions, we had won huge projects by Iranian companies in Indian tenders for ports and roads projects, but due to the coronavirus and some other problems including banking sanctions, our companies left the Indian market.”
Iran is a country with high potentials and a reliable source to supply energy to India, Chegeni concluded.
