The U.S. president issued a video message on the occasion of the Iranian New Year to the Iranian people and all those who celebrate Norooz around the world, heralding better trade relations between the two countries.
In a Norooz message from the Haft Sin table of the White House, Barack Obama said the removal of sanctions will have slow, graduated effects on Iranian economy but he also predicted that Iran’s gradual integration into the global economy will improve its economic fortunes, with growing trade and tourism and opportunities for young Iranians.
He added that the nuclear agreement is also a “small window” of hope to re-establish U.S.-Iran relations and resolve some of the bilateral differences
Obama has sent a Norooz message to congratulate Iranians on the occasion of the New Year ever since he became the U.S. president.
The Iranian New Year began with the arrival of the Spring in the northern hemisphere on March 20 at 8:00 AM local time in Tehran.
