Iranian President Hassan Rowhani has been on a shopping spree in Europe to reap benefits from business deals worth billions of dollars. The red carpet was rolled out for him, and he was invited to some of the most esteemed locations on the continent to meet with business and political leaders.

Car manufacturer Peugeot Citroën signed a deal worth nearly a half billion dollars with Iran Khodro, and Total signed a contract to buy 150,000 - 200,000 barrels of oil per day from Tehran.
