Tehran and Kiev will hold talks on developing economic cooperation next month, a Ukrainian official said, Al-Alam News Network reports.

Iran-Ukraine talks are slated for September 15 at the level of an intergovernmental commission, Mykhailo Bno-Airiian, head of the Ukrainian economic ministry's Department for European Integration, was quoted as saying by The Kiev Post.

It will come for the first time in ten years, added Bno-Airiian while speaking at a press conference in Kyiv on July 30.

The promising prospect of trade with Iran following the conclusion of nuclear talks between Tehran and world powers has prompted European countries to explore avenues for boosting cooperation with the populous Middle East nation.

Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) on July 14 reached a conclusion on a lasting nuclear agreement that would terminate all sanctions imposed on Tehran over its nuclear energy program after coming into force.

Earlier in July, a high-ranking German delegation led by Vice-Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel visited Iran as the first foreign delegation in Tehran after the nuclear conclusion.

Later, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius paid an official visit to Iran for talks with Iranian officials to pave the way for the return of French businesses to the Islamic Republic.

During his stay in Tehran, Fabius announced that a "very important" delegation of French businessmen are planned to travel to Iran in September.

Spain has also plans to send its ministers of trade, energy and tourism, along with a 40-strong trade delegation, to Iran in early September.
