Greek-Iranian diplomatic relations are at a very good level. Greece has an Embassy in Teheran, and Iran is represented by its Embassy in Athens.

Political Relations

As a member of the EU, Greece actively supports community dialogue with Iran in the areas of human rights, the Middle East problem and terrorism. Greece is following developments concerning Iran’s nuclear programme. Greece accepts the right to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes alone, without compromising its long-established position in favour of the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and the creation of a nuclear-free zone in the Middle East.

Economic Relations

Cultural Relations and Greek Community

The cultural similarities between Greeks and Iranians – two of the most ancient peoples – are a firm basis for further development of relations in all sectors. Specifically, there is room for expansion of bilateral trade and economic relations in general, while sectors of particular interest for the development of cooperation include energy, construction, communications and tourism.
