Tehran did not forget Bucharest

In an interview for ‘Ziua’ daily, His Excellency Hamid Reza Arshadi, the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Romania, revealed the intentions to develop the Iranian natural gas routes in Europe and the region’s political future. Among Iran’s foreign policy priorities the Ambassador listed the establishment of a policy of detente with the other states and then the stabilization of relations with the other states in view of playing an active positive role on the international and regional scene. Likewise, efforts are being made in order to bring about peace and justice in the region. ‘The election of Barack Obama is the sign of a change. However it is important to produce changes at the level of palpable actions. However we have received contradictory signals. There are voices that continue to address Iran threateningly’ the Iranian Ambassador stated for the aforementioned daily.

Ambassador Hamid Reza Arshadi underlined Romania’s role in the region and reconfirmed that President Traian Basescu is expected to visit Iran, with the Iranian authorities being prepared for the visit of the Romanian Head of State. In what concerns the bilateral relations, Ambassador Hamid Reza Arshadi showed that the President of the Romanian Academy was accompanied by an important scientific delegation on his recent trip to Iran. Trade relations exist but their potential is much higher than their current level. At political level there are exchanges of delegations.

Two weeks ago the President of the Council of the Guards was in Romania where he met the representatives of the Constitutional Court and other Romanian authorities. Likewise, the director of the Center of Studies from within Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs will take part in an important conference organized by Eurisc.
