The president of France has called his Iranian counterpart, saying Paris is eager for cooperation with Tehran, an Iranian official said Saturday.
Mohammad Jamshidi, the Iranian president’s deputy chief of staff for political affairs, announced in a post on his Twitter account that Emmanuel Macron has called President Ebrahim Raisi on Saturday and had a conversation for 90 minutes.
The French president has made it clear that he seeks interaction with the Islamic Republic of Iran, Jamshidi said.
He also noted that the two presidents talked about the promotion of relations between Iran and France, the negotiations on the removal of anti-Iran sanctions, regional developments, and ways to continue interaction.
Raisi has already highlighted his administration’s push for the termination of the sanctions on Iran, stressing that Tehran would never bow out of the negotiations on the sanctions removal talks and the revival of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
