MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The work on joint projects should start shortly after the lifting of international sanctions against Iran, the ambassador added.
"I hope that 2016 will be the year of implementation of various projects that were initiated and launched in 2015," Sanaei said in an interview with the Rossiya-24 television.
Sanaei said that Russia was experienced and had privilege in a number of projects due to be implemented in Iran, especially in projects related to the rail industry and nuclear power.
Sanaei also said Iran welcomed the presence of Russian companies on its territory.
In November, Moscow and Tehran discussed a number of transport projects worth over $25 billion that could involve large Russian companies.
