Tehran, YJC. Iran’s Ambassador to France Ali Ahani has appeared in an interview by Voice of Russia and the online ProrussiaTV.

Q: France’s behavior on the issue, though, is surprising, showing a kind of political and economical restriction on Iran. For example, as you can see Peugeot has rejected appearing in the Iranian market due to political reasons; or Iran’s initiative on the Petroplus case did never get down to the media, people, or workers, while the Iranian market is expanding, which is a reality. Do you thing that this behavior is underpinned by some ideology or is it a partial approach?

A: Iran-France economic relationships have had their peak record with €6 billion in past years to reach below €1 billion today, which is regrettable because there are many commercial interests for both sides. France, moving along the European Commission decisions, imposes some regulations on French companies, most of them unhappy for having to loose Iran’s big market. On the other side they are seeing that US companies have enhanced export to Iran.
