Germany’s new Ambassador Michael Freiherr von Ungern-Sternberg presented his credentials to the Foreign Minister Aliakbar Salehi on Monday.
In this meeting Salehi pointing to favorable political relations between the two countries said "The two great countries of Iran and Germany are natural partners, enjoying great opportunities to expand relations evermore, especially in economy and commerce.”
The Foreign Minister pointed to Germany as an important country in Europe as well as the world and hoped that with the new Iranian government, the West would change its attitudes from one of distinction to that of cooperation and agreement.
He added "Iran is endowed with great capacities to cooperate with Europe, Germany on particular, on diverse political, security, economic, and commercial grounds.”
Ungern-Sternberg also hoped in turn that with the Rouhani administration, economic cooperation between the two countries will expand.
