Iran and South Korea have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop cooperation on information technology and communication.
The MoU was signed by South Korean Minister of Science, ICT and Future Planning Choi Yang-hee and Iranian Minister of Communication and Information Technology Mahmoud Vaezi on Wednesday.
The two countries signed such MoU in year 1990 for the first time. However, following lifting the sanctions and implementation of the nuclear deal (JCPOA), the two sides called for long-term partnership and economic cooperation.
Iran and South Korea formed joint science and technology committee in 2004, but, its activities were not satisfactory. South Korea voiced interest in activating the committee.
South Korean has called for implementation of the MoUs already signed during visit of President Park Geun-hye to Tehran last April.
Mahmoud Vaezi is currently on a visit to Seoul, South Korea. He visited several IT centers in Seoul.
