Czech Foreign Minister Enjoys Sightseeing in Wonderful Isfahan

A high-ranking Czech Republic delegation headed by Czech Foreign Minister Lubomír Zaorálek on Saturday visited monuments of the historic city of Isfahan in central Iran.


Zaorálek and his accompanying delegation arrived in Isfahan on Friday, were welcomed by Isfahan Governor General and other provincial officials.


The 70-member delegation comprises the directors of 48 companies, including aircraft manufacturing, tourism and traveling, pharmaceuticals, transportation, drilling and oil exploration, mining, power plant and railway firms.


Upon arrival in Isfahan, Zaorálek said that the delegation was the largest trade delegation he had ever been accompanied with in a foreign visit since taking the office.


Czech FM voiced his pleasure with traveling to Isfahan, and expressed the hope the visit would open a new chapter in the ties between Iran and Czech.


Zaorálek also said Isfahan is rich in various fields like culture and arts and hosts arts and history of Iran like a university.


“Isfahan handicrafts is an ever-lasting legacy and such an everlasting art has been passed on from one generation to another generation.” He added.


He noted that Isfahan is comparable with world’s historical cities from many aspects.


At a meeting with Isfahan’s mayor Mehdi Jamalinejad, Zaorálek said that after lifting of sanctions, Iran-Czech commercial relations will be upgraded.


He said Czech citizens and entrepreneurs are much interested in trade and business ties with Iran.


Czech FM noted that Iranian handicrafts and the Czech handicrafts can prepare the ground for cultural relations between the two countries.


‘Czech Republic and Iran, rich in culture, can sign many contracts to take major steps to develop economic cooperation.’


Zaorálek is scheduled to hold consultations with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif and to meet with Minister of Economic Affairs Ali Tayebnia and Minister of Industry, Mines and Trade Mohammad Reza Nematzadeh.


Czech FM - who is due to stay in Iran until September 7 - will be also received by President Hassan Rouhani and Speaker of the Parliament Ali Larijani.


The meetings will focus on bilateral relations, further development of economic cooperation, current international policy issues in the region and the fight against terrorism.


The visit comes as part of a new wave of renewed interest in ties with Iran after Tehran and the Group 5+1  in July reached a deal over Tehran’s nuclear program.


The comprehensive nuclear deal between Iran and the six powers would terminate all nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran after coming into force.
