Iran News - - FRONT PAGE -

TEHRAN – Aus­tria is ready to co­op­er­ate with Mash­had City man­age­ment on dif­fer­ent kinds of tourism like med­i­cal or re­li­gious and it is also ready to exchange its ex­pe­ri­ence in electric trans­porta­tion field.

Aus­trian Am­bas­sador Ste­fan Scholz had a joint meet­ing with Mash­had Mayor Ghasem Taghizadeh Khamesi and Mash­had City Coun­cil mem­bers.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, Aus­trian en­voy said that his pres­ence in Mash­had is a good op­por­tu­nity for him to exchange views on boost­ing co­op­er­a­tion.

He re­it­er­ated that Aus­tria has al­ways been a re­li­able part­ner for Iran even dur­ing hard times. He noted that Iran and Aus­tria’s re­la­tion dates back to 500 years ago and it is his third visit to dif­fer­ent cities of Iran since his ar­rival in Iran six months ago.

Scholz added that he is from a pil­grim­age city which hosts more than 2 mil­lion pil­grims an­nu­ally. He added that in his first visit to Mash­had he is ac­com­pa­nied by com­mer­cial at­tache of the em­bassy to find ways of co­op­er­a­tion.

He noted that Mash­had is an in­dus­trial hub in the coun­try and it plays a great role in the tourism. He added that Aus­tria is also a tourist des­ti­na­tion, as med­i­cal and re­li­gious tourisms can com­plete each other in Mash­had.

He said Aus­tri­ans are to con­struct 6 hos­pi­tals in Iran and the coun­try can co­op­er­ate with Iran in other sec­tors like auto-mak­ing.

Scholz went on to say that Aus­tria can take ad­van­tage of ur­ban man­age­ment ex­pe­ri­ence of Mash­had, adding that Aus­tria can exchange its ex­pe­ri­ence with Mash­had about electric trans­porta­tion as Aus­tria is one of pi­o­neer coun­tries in the field.

He also wel­comed launch­ing di­rect flight be­tween Vi­enna and Mash­had as Aus­trian air­lines are well aware of its im­por­tance.
