TEHRAN, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- Iran has asked Denmark to participate in the country's water and power projects, semi-official Mehr news agency reported Saturday.
Iran's Energy Minister Hamid Chitchian met his Danish counterpart Lars Christian Lilleholt in Copenhagen on Friday, reportedly discussed joint cooperation in the field of renewable energy, improving quality of water resources and wastewater treatment.
Chitchian said that wastewater treatment is now being carried out in most of the Iranian cities, but taking advantage of modern technologies in water and wastewater treatment is still a venue for cooperation between private sectors of Iran and Denmark.
The meeting also decided that top companies of Denmark would make a visit to Tehran in the near future to discuss venues for boosting bilateral cooperation in water and electricity areas.
In a separate meeting with Esben Lunde Larsen, Denmark's Minister for Environment and Food, Chitchian also invited Danish firms to cooperate with their Iranian counterparts to alleviate negative impacts of climate change and to boost water management and irrigation efficiency in the agriculture sector.
