‘Considering the fact that 51% of the Iranians living abroad are in North America, we hope to open an agency to provide insurance services,’ Ahmad-Reza Khazaee told the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).
Khazaee said that Iran doesn’t have an embassy in either of the countries adding that Iran’s Social Security Organization has only one agency in California, which is nowhere near enough.
‘So far 21 agencies have been opened in 21 countries to provide social security services for Iranians residing in other countries.’
Saying that some 74,000 Iranians are receiving social security services, Khazaee added, according to Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs more than 3.5 million Iranians live abroad.
