ICSA CALLS FOR IRISH EMBASSY IN IRAN TO REOPEN

1 DECEMBER 2016

ICSA president Patrick Kent is calling on the Irish government to reopen its Embassy in Tehran. Following a meeting today in Dublin with the Iranian Ambassador to Ireland, His Excellency Javad Kachoueian, Mr Kent said “Huge opportunities for exports of beef and sheepmeat to Iran exist if the market was to open.”

“I would urge the Irish government to look at diplomatic missions to Iran and I would also call on the banking sector to provide facilitates for financial transactions between Irish and Iranian interests.”
