The European Union is cooperating with financial institutions and business community of the 28-nation bloc to encourage them to run business in Iran, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said Tuesday.

Iran’s Membership in Eurasian Economic Union May Serve as 'Economic Bridge'
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the EU foreign policy chief, trade between the European Union and Iran showed a 22-percent increase in January-April 2016.

"We are very actively engaging with the business community and with the banks in Europe and elsewhere outside of Europe to encourage engaging in Iran," Mogherini said at a press conference in Oslo.

Tehran began stepping up international trade and investment cooperation after reaching a historic deal on its nuclear program to ensure its peaceful nature in exchange for the suspension of international anti-Iran sanctions, in particular on its oil sector, in July 2015.

In mid-January, the sanctions were removed after the International Atomic Energy Agency verified the Islamic republic’s compliance with the nuclear agreement.
