Energy Cooperation with Iran a Priority for Europe

TEHRAN -- Norwegian Oil Minister Odd Roger Enoksen said on Tuesday that European countries give priority to cooperation with Iran in the energy sector.

Enoksen made the remarks in a meeting with visiting Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki in Oslo, adding that the Islamic Republic of Iran enjoys abundant capabilities and resources in the Middle East.

Assessing the level of investments, and economic and trade cooperation between Iran and Norway as appropriate, Enoksen noted that increased consultations between the two sides can create grounds for identifying new opportunities for investment.

Mottaki, on his part, said that Iran and Norway have good opportunities to pursue new investments, Irna reported.

Experiences of Tehran and Oslo as well as exchanges among various companies have provided the two friendly countries with greater investment opportunity, he underlined.

Referring to multilateral cooperation between Iranian and Norwegian companies, he noted that their bilateral experiences can prepare grounds for coordination in implementing oil projects, constructing refineries as well as transferring energy among European, Asian and Latin American countries.

Continuing his tour to some North European countries, Mottaki arrived in Oslo today, and held talks with Norwegian ministers of foreign affairs, oil and industries.
