Australia keen to boost economic ties with Iran

TEHRAN Times, Nov. 15 (MNA) – Australia is interested in expanding economic and industrial ties with Iran, Australia’s new ambassador to Tehran, Marc Innes-Brown, said on Saturday in the historical city of Isfahan.

In a meeting with Isfahan Chamber of Commerce Chairman Mohammad Eslamian, Innes-Brown pointed to Tehran Mayor Mohammad-Baqer Qalibaf’s trip to Australia and stated, “His trip drew officials’ attention to some issues.”
