Slovenia ready for energy cooperation with Iran
Slovenian Prime Minister Anton Rop voiced his country's full determination to have cooperation with Iran in energy,
gas and oil fields.
Rop, in a meeting with Iran's accredited Ambassador to Austria Mohsen Nabavi, stressed good relations between the two countries in political and economic fields. He said peaceful use of nuclear energy is the absolute right of all countries and voiced satisfaction of Slovenia, as a new member state of the European Union, over expansion of cooperation between Iran and the EU.
Pointing to the Iraqi crisis, he assessed as complicated the ongoing situation in that country, saying Slovenia
regards no wise solution for Iraq’s very near future but supports transfer of power in this country.
Rop stressed that Iran can play a very vital role for its neighbouring states due to its presence in the region and its neighbourhood with Iraq. The premier further stated that Slovenia can enjoy a better cooperation with certain countries including Iran on issues including Iraq and the Middle East.
