(Persia Digest) - Iranian Ambassador to Ljubljana, Kazemi Shafei, said on Friday that the value of trade transactions between Iran and Slovenia had a 23% increase in the 9-month period of last year.

Supporting past cooperation is a good basis for developing relations in the future, the Iranian ambassador said, thanking the Slovenian government for its wise and reasonable position toward the 2015 Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA), particularly in the wake of US’ unilateral withdrawal from the agreement.

Shafei also discussed Iran’s responsible and constructive conduct toward international commitments, and criticized the irresponsible, unconventional, and unlawful conduct of the United States.
