Finnish Ambassador to Tehran Harri Kämäräinen said on Saturday that a working group comprising Iranian and Finnish banking governors as well as experts has been formed to look into ways of solving banking problems.
He said the working group has shown promising progress in lifting the banking problems facing Iranian and Finnish banks and it seems that in the near future, the two sides will establish banking exchanges.
He noted that in the post-JCPOA era, a good opening has been made in relations between Iran and the Netherlands and the visit of the president, foreign minister and a number of other Finnish ministers to Iran and of foreign minister and certain Iranian ministers to the Netherlands are among the most important political events in the post-JCPOA era.
“Furthermore, a large number of big Finnish companies, especially the companies cooperating with Iran in supply of basic materials and technology, resumed activity in the post-JCPOA era.”
He added that both Iran and Finland have had good political and commercial relations with each other since long time ago and their capacity allows further strengthening of the ties in the post-JCPOA era.
The diplomat said his country can put its forestry and sewage treatment experience at the disposal of Iran’s northern Mazandaran Province, which is a province rich in forests, and such a cooperation can be well extended between the two sides’ agriculture and rangeland keeping universities.
