Iran, Austria presidents hold joint presser
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his Austrian counterpart Heinz Fischer have held a joint press conference in the Iranian capital, Tehran.


According to Press TV, President Fischer, who is in Iran on an official visit, said during the presser that he expected Austria’s bilateral trade with Iran to grow to 300 million euros (335 million dollars) this year, and continue to “markedly” increase in the coming years.
The Iranian president, for his part, firstly thanked the Austrian government for its “good hosting” of the nuclear negotiations between Iran and the 5+1 group, which culminated in an agreement between the two sides.
In response to a question about Iran’s support for the Syrian government, President Rouhani said the priority now is putting an end to the total insecurity in the country and the misery of the people.
The Iranian president said “The first step is to stop the bloodshed in Syria,” adding that once that priority is fulfilled, it will be time to discuss such political issues as democracy and opposition in the Arab country.
