Iranian Minister of Industries and Mines Ali Akbar Mehrabian on Wednesday described the economic and commercial talks between Iran and a visiting Brazilian delegation as "very good," the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

"During the visit of Brazilian minister of development, industry and trade and his accompanying delegation to Tehran, very good negotiations were held between the two sides' state and private sectors," Mehrabian was quoted as saying.

Heading a 120-member delegation, Brazilian Minister of Development, Industry and Trade Miguel Joao Jorge Filho arrived in Tehran on Monday to discuss bilateral ties with Iranian officials.

The Industrial Trade and Cooperation Seminar of Iran and Brazil opened in Tehran on Tuesday, the official IRNA news agency reported.

Iranian and Brazilian industrial and economic officials on Wednesday made over a dozen agreements to launch cooperation between the two countries, Fars said. "We made agreements on 20 fields of cooperation," the Iranian minister said, adding that "Once the agreements are finalized, Iran's exports to Brazil will undergo a considerable increase."

The agreements by the two countries include banking services, Mehrabian told reporters.
