Ukrain Economy Chief to lead delegation to IRAN

Ukraine's Economy Minister said Wednesday he would follow his European colleagues to Iran seeking business opportunities from the anticipated easing of sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
Economy Minister Aivaras Abromavicius said his three-day trip starting September 14 would include a "large group of industrial leaders" as well the war-torn state's agriculture minister, AFP reported.
Abromavicius told a Ukrainian cabinet meeting that the former Soviet nation wanted to improve relations with Tehran after removal of Anti-Iran sanctions.
Economically struggling Ukraine has already signed a $3 billion (2.7-billion-euro) loan-for-corn deal with China and hopes to replicate that in Europe and the Middle East.
