|Rouhani says Iran ready to mediate between South, North Korea||
TEHRAN – Iran is ready to mediate between Seoul and Pyongyang to help reduce the tension on the Korean peninsula, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said.
He made the remarks during a meeting with South Korea’s National Assembly Speaker Kang Chang-hee, who visited Tehran this week, Global Times reported.
Kang, heading a parliamentary delegation, visited Tehran on Sunday and Monday and held talks with senior Iranian officials, including Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and President Rouhani.
During his meeting with Rouhani, Kang also called for a rapid expansion of economic ties with Tehran in the light of a nuclear agreement in Geneva last November which has paved the way for an easing of economic sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
