Tehran (ISNA) – Stressing that the Islamic Republic of Iran has enjoyed good stability and security, Iranian first Vice-President said, Tehran is a reliable partner for the European Union and it can rely on cooperation with Iran.

During the meeting with the European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Phil Hogan, Iran's first Vice-President Es’haq Jahangiri said, “Iran's economic cooperation with the EU countries has a long history and almost all European companies have had an active presence in Iran's economy in the energy, industry and agriculture sectors”.

"Before sanctions were imposed, the European Union was Iran's first trading partner and even some European countries were in first and second places, but when the sanctions were imposed trade and economic cooperation between Iran and EU fell sharply, however, Iran’s economy continued to grow," he added.

During the meeting, the two officials emphasized the development of economic cooperation between Iran and the EU.
