VP: Trade with EAEU A Chance for Iran

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran’s First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri said that free trade with the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) is a good chance for Iran’s economy.

“An agreement for free trade between Iran and the EAEU will serve as a good chance for the Iranian economy,” Jahangiri said, adding that free trade with neighboring countries will pave Iran’s way to economic, industrial and agricultural progress.  

In relevant remarks in mid-November, Head of the Iranian Association of Geopolitics Yahya Rahim Safavi said Iran is a strategic link between Asia and Europe, stressing the country’s irreplaceable and unique geopolitical position in the world.

Safavi, speaking in Anzali, underscored Iran’s unmatched geopolitical position in the world that can connect China, Kazakhstan, Central Asia, and West Asia to the Mediterranean and Europe, adding, “Transportation of Iranian goods to Russia and Europe is another economic axis that can be considered in the context of Iran’s relations with the International Conference of the EAEU.”

“Today, the global power structure is slowly moving towards a new order.” he said.

“The decline of American economic, political, and cultural power at the internal and global level is definite,” the official noted.

“Today we are witnessing the emergence of new economic, political, cultural and security powers on a regional level in Oceania and Asia,” he went on to say.
