Iran’s accredited Ambassador to Reykjavik Seyed Hossein Rezvani met with Icelandic president Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson last Saturday, where the two discussed how to better strengthen the ties between the two countries.
According to the Iranian news site Fars News Agency, the Icelandic president expressed a willingness to extend technological knowledge in the fields of fishing and geothermal energy to Iran. By the same token, Rezvani sought to expand relations with Iceland in “political, economic and cultural arenas,” Fars reports.
“He underlined the necessity for increasing reciprocal visits by the political, economic and cultural officials of both countries, and asked for further facilities and planning for cooperation between Iran and Iceland’s state and private sectors,” the article reads in part.
Rezvani also met with Minister of Foreign Affairs Össur Skarphéðinsson, discussing “the latest developments in the bilateral relations as well as other issues of mutual interest.”
