In a Saturday meeting with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for American and European Affairs Majid Takht Ravanchi in Tehran, the visiting Mexican described the purpose of his trip to Iran as enhancement of bilateral relations.
“Our common goal lies within the framework of peaceful coexistence among the nations and the international law,” de Icaza noted.
