South Korean Ambassador to Tehran Kim Sung-ho voiced his satisfaction over expansion of his country’s trade relations with Iran.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is one of South Korea’s reputable trade partners in the Middle East region and the world and the expansion of economic-trade ties with this country is one prioritized goals of the South Korean government,” Kim said, addressing a meeting with economic activists in Arak city in Central Iran on Tuesday.
He underscored that his country considers Iran not as (only) a market to sell its products or services, but as a partner to share economic and industrial experiences.
“South Korea has had very good political relations with Iran since a long time ago and such good relations should pave the way for further cooperation in trade and economic sectors,” the South Korean envoy added.
“Over 97 percent of Iran-South Korea ties have been in the field of oil purchases and three percent in the field of buying mobile phones and automobiles,” Kim went on to say.
