(ADW) Luxembourg’s Parliament President, Mars Di Bartolomeo, took a trip to Iran at the weekend to meet with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, at a historic moment following the lifting of international sanctions on the country.

They both agreed that a new chapter will open between Iran, the EU and, respectively, Luxembourg.

“We must ensure that these new links are established with a long-term perspective and in a sustainable manner,” said Di Bartolomeo.

After the nuclear agenda, the priority issue is stability in the region. Faced with extremists from all sides, there is an importance to support Iran’s leadership, the Luxembourg delegation agreed.

During the meeting, Mohammad Javad Zarif stated that his country wants the European Union to be more involved in the region.

On Sunday afternoon, the Luxembourg delegation was received by the President of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, who expressed his satisfaction at the lifting of the sanctions.

He also stated the desire to establish new relationships both political and economic between the two countries.

In this context, the Iranian President considered that Luxembourg, with its financial center, would be an attractive partner.

In turn, Di Bartolomeo expressed his hope that relations would not be confined solely to economic reasons but that they are also built on shared humanitarian values.
