He added that Italy has been a reliable trade partner of Iran for many year since the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
Stressing the need for enhanced ties between the two countries, the official said Italy is importing petrochemical products, oil, leather, and stones from Iran.
"Iran is also importing technology and machinery from the European country," Pourfallah said.
Among EU nations, Italy is a major trade partner for Iran. With more than €2.58 billion worth of purchases, Italy was the main export destination for Iranian products during the 10 months to Oct. 31, 2017, registering a significant 315 percent increase compared with the corresponding period of 2016.
