Amir Abdollhian made the remarks on Thursday in a meeting with the Italian envoy to Iran Giuseppe Perrone.
Definitely, we will overcome the new [US] sanctions powerfully and relying on the huge potentials of the country and the great Iranian nation, but Europe must find ways not to lose chance of active economic cooperation with Iran, he stressed.
Unfortunately, Europe's fear of US unilateralism has resulted in the loss of golden opportunities for economic cooperation with Iran, the official said.
While scaring Europe against trade with Iranians by deliberately violating international law, US President Donald is begging for negotiation and dealing with Iran, the speaker’s aide noted.
Describing the destructive conduct of US, Israel and Saudi Arabia as a source of regional tension and instability, Amir Abdollahian said that the US’ blatant support for terrorist groups and interference in regional affairs have aggravated the crisis.
Italian envoy, for his part, said that Rome is determined to preserve coherent, historic and deep-rooted relations with Iran.
Perrone also praised Tehran's role in fighting terrorism in the region and highlighted significance of continued cooperation between the two countries.
Parliamentary friendly relations play an important role in bolstering mutual ties, and Italy has always welcomed interaction with Iran, he said.
In relevant remarks in early October 2019, Giuseppe Perrone voiced his country’s willingness to develop mutual cooperation with Iran in different fields, especially in economic and trade areas.
