Envoy urges post-Brexit Britain to lift economic challenges with Iran

London, Jan 31, IRNA – Iran's Ambassador to the UK Hamid Baeidinejad on Friday referred to British government's interest to boost ties with Iran in post-Brexit era, saying that there are challenges in the way of reaching the desirable point which should be removed, most important of which are sanctions imposed by the US.

In a message in his telegram account on Friday, he said that Britain is to officially leave EU after 23:00 GMT on 31 January 2020. Withdrawal from EU is one of the main political developments in Britain's contemporary history which will surely leave major impacts on the country's political, economic and social developments as well as those of the EU.

Under the new conditions, Britain will shoulder a major responsibility and that's for the same reason it wants, through promoting economic relations with the world's major countries and free from restrictions imposed by the EU regulations, to prevent the country's economic power decline and to achieve further economic growth.

Pointing to Iran and Britain's experience in post-JCPOA era, Baeidinejad said during the short period, they signed major deals worth of several billion euros including agreement to commission the fifth solar power plant in Iran as well as the agreements with Airbus and Rolls-Royce and other British companies.

All these indicate that enough potential exists to promote economic relations between the two countries, he said.

Baedinejad further noted that opposition to the sanctions is not limited to Iran's borders; rather all private companies in the world have lost their legitimate right to forge economic and trade relations with the Iranian sides.

Big companies in the world and EU which are fed up with the US pressure and bullying expect to see failure of Trump and his policies.
