Iran’s Larjinai, Chinese FM Meet in Tehran

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Ali Larijani, a senior adviser to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi met in Tehran on Saturday.

During the meeting, the two officials discussed development of the bilateral relations between Tehran and Beijing.

They also talked about a 25-year cooperation agreement that the two countries are going to sign.

The Chinese top diplomat arrived here in the Iranian capital on Friday afternoon.

He is also scheduled to meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said Friday that the Chinese Foreign Minister is visiting Tehran on the 50th anniversary of the two countries’ diplomatic relations to have meetings with a number of senior officials and sign the document.

He added that the cooperation document was discussed in 2015 during the visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to Iran in order to take bilateral relations to a new level of comprehensiveness and strategic importance.

“The relationship between Iran and China is multi-layered, deep, and multi-dimensional, and this necessitates them to be included in a document. As a result, the agreement has been exchanged between the two countries many times, and it will eventually be signed by the Foreign Ministers on Saturday,” Khatibzadeh said.

He stressed that the agreement would function as a “road map” in deepening the bilateral relations.
