TEHRAN March 6 (Shana) - Head of the Parliamentary Friendship Group of Iran and Japan has voiced Japan's willingness in bolstering ties with Iran in all economic levels including nuclear technology.
In a Wednesday meeting with the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Tokyo, Masahiko Komura expressed his country's willingness to step in the Iranian market, and said that various Japanese economic sectors are eager to expand ties with Iran.
He also underlined the Geneva deal between Tehran and the Sextet of world powers in November 2013, and expressed satisfaction over implementation of the deal going on well.
The peaceful use of nuclear technology is an undeniable right for all nations and Iran has fully cooperated with the West since the Geneva agreement, he said.
"Clinching a final agreement in the talks between Iran and the P5+1 group is in line with Japan's interests and the country is ready to offer nuclear expertise to Tehran after the deal is finalized," said the Japanese official.
For his part, Zarif described Iran-Japan relations age-old and good and said the Islamic Republic of Iran maintains that the result of the talks will be favorable if there exist seriousness and determination.
He also hinted at the possibility of future nuclear cooperation between Iran and Japan, expressing the hope that partnership in the fields of oil, gas and environment would further flourish.
Iran and the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) inked an interim deal on Tehran’s nuclear program in Geneva last November, while the two sides are trying to reach a final, comprehensive agreement over the course of six months which would lead to a lifting of the whole sanctions on Iran.
