German-Iran Trade Relations Flourishing

Three German deputies had visited Iran the previous week and the same has highlighted the resilient trade relationship of Germany with Tehran. However, the same has sometimes been a reason of outrage and frustration for France, Britain, the US and Israel to impose strict EU economic sanctions.

It has been found that since Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been appointed as the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran in 2005, the exports of Germany to Iran have reached more than 25 billion euros.

Statistical account of German-Iranian trade had been presented by the Federal Republic's office of statistics on Friday in Wiesbaden. The report covers data from 1950 to 2011 same has shown that the bilateral trade relations between the Islamic Republic and Germany are continuously flourishing.

It has been told that German exports had totaled 2.64billion euros in 1975 only. And in 1977, Germany added to the same touching 3.24 billion euros approximately, which turned to 3.46 billion euros worth of goods to Iran in 1978.

The European Foundation for Democracy's fellow Dr. Wahied Wahdat-Hagh is of the opinion, "The numbers are better for Ahmadinejad than during the period of the Shah Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, who ruled Iran from 1941 to 1979".
