Iranian Parliamentary Delegation to Leave for Cuba, Syria, Lebanon
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – An Iranian parliamentary delegation is scheduled to leave Tehran for Cuba, Syria, Lebanon and some Latin American countries by the next few days, Chairman of the Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi announced.
“The exact date for the parliamentary delegation’s departure is not clear yet, but it will be specified soon,” Boroujerdi told the Tasnim News Agency on Saturday.
He also noted that the Iranian parliamentarians will in their tour of the Middle East and Latin American countries hold talks with those countries’ high-ranking officials.
In December, a senior Iranian lawmaker emphasized the necessity to enhance ties with parliaments of other countries, adding that the legislature has invited a number of parliamentary groups to pay a visit to Tehran.
“Parliamentary groups facilitate the promotion of Iran’s ties with different countries and they have a good effect on assisting the foreign ministry to promote relations,” Abbas Ali Mansouri Arani, member of the Iranian parliament’s national security and foreign policy commission, said at the time.
