Ahvaz, IRNA – Japan’s ambassador to Iran Kazutoshi Aikawa while referring to Trump administration’s anti-Iranian sanctions said here on Monday that the sanctions have created obstacles in the way of implementing the new Iran-Japan projects, which is why "we hope the JCPOA will be revived soon".

He reiterated that the development of relations with local organizations is of great significance in diplomacy, which is why visiting Khuzestan province and getting familiarized with this land was included in my work plans.

The Japanese ambassador said that during the previous years, too, he had visited Khuzestan province, adding that Ahvaz has been developed noticeably compared with the previous years.

“Khuzestan province has great potentials for economic investments, including in energy and agricultural fields, which have both been in the focus of attention for us,” he added.

The Japanese ambassador also referred to his country’s cooperation with Iran in management of COVID-19 disease, arguing that it was a very constructive and effective cooperation, including contributing more than 3 million doses of vaccines by Japan to Iran.
