TEHRAN – Iranian Majlis Speaker Ali Larijai said on Tuesday that Iran and Bosnia-Herzegovina have close views on regional crises.
During a joint press conference with President of the Bosnian House of Senate Safet Softic in Tehran, Larijani said steps should be taken in removing obstacles to expansion of ties.

The nuclear agreement, clinched in July 2015, went into effect in January 2016.
