Rouhani: Iran ready to export steel, energy to Vietnam
President Rouhani, who is on a state visit to Hanoi, made the remarks in a meeting with Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.
President Rouhani emphasized that the expansion of relations with Southeast Asian countries, especially Vietnam, has always been Iran's top priority.
He said that lifting anti-Iran sanctions have already paved the grounds for the two countries to enhance their economic ties, adding, "Tehran and Hanoi need to strengthen their banking relations first in order to facilitate any step toward the expansion of commercial relations." ■
