TEHRAN, April 23 (Shana) – Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh said that Iran and Sweden are eager to expand cooperation in various energy fields.

“The cooperation in the oil sector was limited in the past”, he said saturday after meeting Swedish Energy Minister Ibrahim Baylan.

In a December meeting with Sweden's Minister for Enterprise and Innovation Mikael Damberg, Zanganeh had said that the two countries can enhance their energy ties, adding that Swedish companies can supply Iran's petroleum industry with the required state-of-the-art machinery.

He also said Tehran and Stockholm can cooperate in optimization of energy consumption, petrochemical industry and construction of industrial machinery.
