TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The foreign ministers of Iran and China on Saturday signed a 25-year agreement to develop cooperation between the two countries in various fields.
The document was signed by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi after the two top diplomats held talks at the Foreign Ministry in Tehran today.
The Iran-China Comprehensive Strategic Partnership was announced in a joint statement during a visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping to Tehran in 2016.
The cooperation roadmap consists of 20 articles, covering Tehran-Beijing ties in “Political,” “Executive Cooperation,” “Human and Cultural,” “Judiciary, Security and Defense,” and “Regional and International” domains, according to the statement released back then.
On Saturday, the Chinese foreign minister also held talks with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Ali Larijani, a senior adviser to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution.
In his meeting with Larijani, Wang said his country’s relations with Iran will not be affected by the conditions of the day but will remain permanent and strategic.
Referring to the historic and friendly relations between Tehran and Beijing, he stressed the importance of bilateral cooperation within the framework of the 25-year strategic partnership agreement and expressed his satisfaction with the deal’s finalization.
