The long-term objective pursued by the Danish plant construction proposal is to turn Iran into a production hub, from which products can be exported to other regional countries, said Energy Minister Hamid Chitchian following his meeting with Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs Kristian Jensen.

He added that the main aim of the meeting was to represent the investment opportunities of the Iranian water and energy sectors to Danish financiers.

As the implementation day of the nuclear Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is approaching, foreign countries are expressing growing enthusiasm for expanding presence in Iranian projects, he said.

Earlier on Monday, Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohammad Javad Zarif said Iran and Denmark are going to discuss expansion of mutual ties in various areas including the field of oil and energy.

Speaking at a joint press conference with Jensen in Tehran, Zarif said the visiting official who is heading a large delegation from public and private sectors is scheduled to meet Iranian officials including the Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh.

He said the topics to be negotiated during Jensen’s stay include banking, trade, economy, culture, education, research, human rights, exchange of experience, regional problems such as extremism and terrorism, anti-drugs, and Islamophobia.
