President Rouhani Invited to Foreign Countries: Adviser
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has received a couple of invitations to visit some foreign countries, his media adviser said, but noted that no decision on the matter has been made so far.
“There are a number of requests from foreign countries for president’s visit,” Mohammad Reza Sadeq told Tasnim on Monday.
But he said a decision, which could be announced publicly, has not been made so far.
President Rouhani has on numerous occasions, including in his UN General Assembly address, noted that his government is after constructive and peaceful interaction with the whole world.
"We will seek effective and constructive understanding and interaction with the outside world, focus on mutual confidence building with our neighbors and other regional and international actors... We will work on easing and removing tensions in our foreign relations and strengthening our relationship with our traditional and new partners in all regions," Rouhani told the UN in September.
Mohammad Reza Sadeq announced earlier that the Iranian chief executive had held separate meetings with presidents and prime ministers of 17 different countries on the sidelines of the 68th annual session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
