Iran Nuclear Deal to Boost Trade Between Tehran and Moscow

The head of Iran-Russia Joint Chamber of Commerce said that ratification of the nuclear agreement recently clinched by the Islamic Republic and six world powers will promote Tehran-Moscow bilateral trade.

“Of course, the ratification of this agreement will seriously boost the growth of trade and economic partnership between Iran and Russia,” Asadollah Asgaroladi

In 2014, bilateral trade between Tehran and Moscow amounted to about $1.7 billion, an increase of some five percent compared to 2013.

Asgaroladi stressed that trade turnover between Russia and Iran could significantly increase as soon as 2016, after the agreement is ratified by the signatories in December 2015 or in January 2016.


Iran and P5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) on July 14 reached a conclusion on a lasting nuclear agreement that would terminate all sanctions imposed on Tehran over its nuclear energy program after coming into force.

The 159-page deal has its own opponents and proponents both in Iran and the other countries that are parties to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), particularly the US.

While the United Nations Security Council has adopted a resolution to endorse the deal, the text of the document needs to be ratified by both Iran’s parliament and the US Congress.
