Iranian Women and Family Affairs Vice President Massoumeh Ebtekar met with President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo in a visit that aimed to expand bilateral relations and trade opportunities between Indonesia and Iran and to present the importance of the Iranian nuclear deal to the world.

The meeting took place on the sidelines of the World Ulema Consultation (KTT) in Bogor, West Java, which began on Tuesday.

Ebtekar said she talked about expanding Indonesia's bilateral relations with Iran, where she said there were many investment opportunities for Indonesian corporations as the Iranian government had improved conditions for foreign investment.

“I also mentioned the importance of a nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 group. It’s not just a deal between Iran and the west but it's also an international deal,” she said on Tuesday evening.

The P5+1 group she referred to comprises China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States, plus Germany.

Ebtekar said the Iran nuclear deal was an important step toward ensuring multilateralism

“I hope this deal is realized as Iran has complied and stood by its principles. I hope it will proceed and continue so it  can ensure the world's peace and security,” she said. (ebf)
