New York (IP) – In a meeting with his Swedish counterpart, the Iranian foreign minister urged boosting the volume of trade between Iran and Sweden.

Iran PressAmerica: In a meeting with Ann Linde on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian noted that the volume of Iran-Sweden trade and economic relations are not in good condition and said: "Establishing direct flights and facilitating travel between Tehran and Stockholm are among the measures that can help enhance trade relations between the two countries."

Amir-Abdollahian also discussed bilateral relations and regional issues, including the situation in Yemen and Afghanistan, with his Swedish counterpart.

Stressing that there is no military solution to the Yemeni crisis and the humanitarian crisis must end with lifting the siege, the Iranian foreign minister called the war in Yemen an unequal war in which the Yemeni people are cowardly targeted.

He also referred to the trial of an Iranian citizen in Sweden and stressed that the MKO terror group is behind this inhumane case fabrication and conspiracy.

"The court should pay attention to the fact that all the documents and allegations in this court have been fabricated by a group known to be false and deceitful, which shows the invalidity and political goals of the process," Amir-Abdollahian added.

The Swedish foreign minister also stated that Sweden seeks to expand relations with Iran.

Ann Linde suggested that the joint political committee of the two countries convene in Tehran soon.
