TEHRAN – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani held separate meetings with a number of new ambassadors to Tehran on Monday and received their credentials.
During a meeting with the new accredited ambassador of Albania to Tehran, Rouhani called for expansion of ties with Tirana in various areas.
He said the two countries should prepare the grounds to increase bilateral relations in economic and cultural fields.
Also, the Albanian ambassador said that he would make efforts to boost ties between Tehran and Tirana.
In his meeting with the new Slovenian ambassador, President Rouhani said the grounds should be laid for the private sectors of the two countries to conduct their business.
He also voiced Tehran’s readiness to increase its cooperation with the European country on the tourism industry.
The Slovenian ambassador, for his part, said there are ample opportunities for the two countries to increase their relations.
He added that the Slovenian Parliament speaker will likely visit Tehran in the near future.
Rouhani also met with the new ambassador of Fiji and said that the two countries, as the member states of the Group of 77 and the Non-Aligned Movement, can increase their cooperation in different fields.
The Group of 77 at the United Nations is a loose coalition of developing nations, designed to promote its members' collective economic interests and create an enhanced joint negotiating capacity in the United Nations. There were 77 founding members of the organization, but by November 2013 the organization had since expanded to 133 member countries.
In his meeting with the ambassador of Lithuania, Rouhani said Tehran attaches great importance to its relations with the European Union.
He added that Iran’s relations with Europe are not limited to trade and economic relations, rather the two cooperate in cultural, regional, and international areas.
The Iranian president also held a meeting with the ambassadors of the African country of Burundi on the same day.
