May 30, 2016

TEHRAN – Iranian Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said on Sunday that parliamentary friendship groups can play an important role in strengthening ties between Iran and Ukraine.

“Efforts should be made to push the friendship groups to be more active, because they can play a part in expansion of political and economic relations as well as strengthening parliamentary ties,” Larijani said during a meeting with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin in Tehran.

Larijani also said that Ukraine can invest in Iran to help the country develop its railway network.

He also suggested that Ukraine should expand economic relations with Asian and European countries in order to find a way out of its current crisis.

For his part, Klimkin said that Iran and Ukraine have many commonalities and called for expansion of relations.

He invited the Iranian Majlis speaker to visit Ukraine.

Expansion of the parliamentary relations between the two countries can help promote the political and economic ties, the Ukrainian minister noted.
