‘Tehran, Seoul to boost ties despite U.S. pressure’

September 16, 2018

TEHRAN – In a Saturday meeting, Asadollah Abbasi, the president of Iran-South Korea parliamentary friendship group, and Kang Seok-ho, a senior member of the South Korean National Assembly, agreed that bilateral relations must not be affected by U.S. pressure.

Pointing to U.S. policies against the Islamic Republic, Abbasi said Washington’s irrational policies, which are in violation of international law, have led to the spread of instability in different regions of the world, Fars reported.

On Tehran-Seoul relations, he said, “There are numerous venues of cooperation in areas of politics, economy, culture and parliament in the two countries and the barriers should be removed and the ground should be paved for expanding and extending communications and interactions.”
